    The new Stingray 5 “Classics” have a rounder 7.25 radius compared to the standard flatter 9 in radius on other current SR5’s. I’m looking at getting an earlier ‘92 ish model, I prefer the flatter radius can someone who owns or has owned an older one tell me what the neck radius on the early 90’s era SR5's was?

    Thanks,

    The "normal" SR5 has always had the same fingerboard radius since it came out in '87.

    The Classic SR5 is a different beast and only meant to compliment the Classic SR4 which is based on 70's StingRays.
    There was never such a thing as a 70's SR5 or it's specs.

    11". All MM 5-strings but the Classic series are 11" radius.
