    What difference is there between 20" fingerboard radius and flat? 6 string of course. Thanks

    The 20" is slightly curved and of course the Flat is is completely flat, there's definitely a difference between the two.

    In what other aspect are you referring to?

    Wondering about it is all. Had read some specs that included flat finger board and thought to self just how comfortable or uncomfortable that would be. Years ago played a flat fret board on a classical guitar but of course that was narrower than a 6 string bass.
    Thanks

    I use a flat for my fretlesses. Usually 20" all the way down to 7.5" for the fretted ones. I just happen to like a flat for fretless.
