Hey, I was wondering if anybody knew if putting a compound radius of 7 1/4 - 11 or 9 1/2 - 11 would screw up the whole "Balance of the pickup" thing. the radius at the bridge for these two would be, respectivly, 12.25 inches and 11.5 inches.


Is this enough to make th guitar sound like crap?

the Kinman website says that pretty much uniform is the only way to go, or having a 7 1/4 to 9 1/2 radius...

Fender designed their staggered pole-piece arrangement around a vintage neck with a small radius. Something like 7.25 " Their modern necks are flatter. Around 9.5".

If you use a compound radius that has a flatter than 11" finish at the bridge, just use pickups with flat pole piece heights.
