    Hey All,

    Does anyone happen to know the radius of my Stinger SBX fingerboard? I am planning to make a project out of this bass, including defretting, and I want to get a radius block to make sure the neck is sanded right. My other plans are rattle can repaint (thinking of Rustoleum color shift if I can find it), black hardware, and changing out electronics. Also curious about experiences with different types of P-bass style pickups from different manufacturers. I have done some research and think I am into the Seymour Duncans....not sure if I prefer the regular or hot, but I am certainly leaning toward the SD's. Thanks for any feedback you have. sbx.

    Download a set of these free pdf radius guages, print out 1:1, that will tell you PDQ. Print on card stock if you have any, and they will last a good long while, useful for checking radius on bridge saddles too.
