Hey guys, just let go of my 70’s reissue, which was the first I ever played with the 7.25 radius. Liked the rounded fretboard for a lot of reasons, but Definitely wasn’t ideal for bends. I only had it for a week, so I probably would’ve figured out the tricks over time. the new guitar I picked up is the classic player 60’s. This one has a 12” radius, and bends are much easier...but again, I’ll have to get used to it. Found it weird that they went 12”, because my best guess would be that they weren’t 12” in the 60’s. anyway, what do you guys prefer? one of my favorite quotes ever on this board was about Muddy Waters and Buddy guy. The poster talked about how we obsess over these things, while those guys probably never gave them a thought. And Buddy can BEND.
