    Done several searches and cannot seem to find a good answer to this. Anyone around here know what the Radius is on the SR800? I have one but am not sure how to measure this.

    Seen a few places mention an 8" radius. Just doesn't seem right to me though.

    Any help is much appreciated.:bassist:

    I don't recall it being 8", that's a bit too extreme for ibanez. IIRC, is about a 12" radii

    If i'm not mistaken, most ibanez basses are 12"

    The 6 string basses are around 15", the 4's and 5's are 12" (Presteige and SR's) excepting a few of the sig basses.

    The guitars are mostly 16", except for some of the sig guitars

    Almost all of the current SR lineup has a 305mm radius, which is 12".

    The exception is the 6-string models, which are 400mm, except the SR5006E, which is 500mm.

    Hammerhed's right. Sixers have a 400mm radius and all others except specials, have a 305mm radius...
