i want to know the differences between all like bigger the number it makes the radius more curved or what?? and the measures of the radius if its not much to ask
#2
imagine a circle. if it has a radius of 7, its smaller than a circle with a radius of 12., it would be a tighter circle.
#3
bigger number = flatter fretboard i think

the larger the radius - the flatter the board.

imagine getting a compass (the geometry device, not the arrows and stuff) and drawing a circle on a piece of paper. the curve of that circle is the radius, so if you've got a guitar with an 11" fretboard radius, make a circle which has a 11" radius (22" diameter). the amount of curvature in that circle is the curvature you'll find when you look at your neck straight from the heel.

it's easier to play lead guitar with a flat fretboard and it's easier to do chords on a rounder fretboard (your barred fingers can relax and wrap around ), which is why some guitars have compound radii (plural of radius, lol) so there's a rounder fretboard on the earlier frets but when you move up to the 12 fret or so it gets flatter.

if all this makes sense...

Well technically that's not the radius, I think it's half the diameter, so a circle with that radius will have that curvature.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

its not the radious, but rather will alter the arc of the circle, But bigger number means flatter fretboard thats all you need to know
