I've been playing old fender basses for the most part and therefore my technique is built up around those kind of instruments. Lately I bought some other basses that has a more flat fingerboard and I have some problems getting adjusted to that, especially when crossing strings. Is there any obvious advantage to a more flat fingerboard if you have a pickup that's adjusted to fit the strings output vise? A lot of high class luthiers seems to prefer this when building their basses (if they don't do a special vintage model that is). Is it just easier from a bass-building standpoint and makes for a more even neck response or is there some other reasons for doing this? Even though old fenders are very popular with their more scooped radius (7-9") it seems like on newer production models it's almost always flatter (12-14" radius) Do most players prefer the flatter fingerboard in spite the fender legacy and is it just me having this problem?
