i'm searching for a strat with a 14" radius. Which Fender got a 14" radius?
The American Deluxe has a compound raius fretboard with 9.5" at the first fret and 14" at the last. That's probably the only factory Fender guitar with anything 14". They have a few with 12" though or you could go custom shop and get whatever radius you want.
what about the old Charvel CX series. I think they have 16" compund
The strat select hss also has a compound radius of 9.5-14
Thanks but I searching for a strat with no compound radius.... only 14"
Then you would need to order a custom built
Deluxe Player neck has a 12" radius, you could fret level a little flatter.
Okay, that's clear! Thanks!
I believe you wouldn't notice the difference between a 12 radius and a 14 radius if you didn't search for it. Try a 12 radius factory strat before spending 6000-8000 USD on a custom build.
I've got a very nice CP60 strat with the 12" radius. For me, it's playing a lot finer/better then the 9,5 radius. So I love the 12" but I'm curious to a 14".
You want a 14" radius? Only place you'll get that is on the Warmoth website, and you'll have to order a custom built neck to get it! I really like their 10-16" compound radius though.
Carvin offers a straight 14" radius option. That's the only manufacturer I'm aware of that does a straight 14."
Hummmm ... are you a former classical player? That is quite a flat radius. Good luck finding a non-custom neck. I am also guessing you don't hang your thumb over the top of the neck either.
My Eric Johnson Strat has a 12" and I double dog dare you to tell the difference in that and a 14"!
Why not just find a neck you like & run it through a planer?
I don't understand why you'd need it to be 14 specifically. Why not just get a flatter radius strat like an EJ. There's gonna be negligible difference
According to this thread, SX guitars have a 13.7 radius.
I shoulda thought of that. Ive bought a bunch.
I've had a couple of guitars with 14" radius and they're a bear to chord with, especially barre chords. For shredding, they're very nice.
Closest I know of that isn't compund by Fender is the Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT, it's got a 15.75" radius. It's got dual Seymour Duncan HB's, a pearly gates in the bridge and a '59 in the neck. I thought about getting that instead of a strat at first but you guys won me over here. lol But here's a link anyhow.
