    Hi all,
    The Sire's fretboard radius being 7,25" I have a noticeable string inbalance (weaker D and A) especially on the bridge PU (the stock one).Unable to correct this,no matter what I tried during the neck/PU/saddles setup.
    As I don't mind a hotter bridge PU than the stock one,I might opt for a pair of Nordstrand BJB4 (JB blades - the W&W variety) ....their blades are radiused but I didn't find any reference about the radius' value on these PUs.
    Does anyone here use Nordstrand BJB4's on a 7,25" fretless fretboard?If yes,does the BJB4's solve the string (in)balance?
    THX!
    PS
    Question no. 2:does anyone know what's the BJB4 W&W's DC resistance?

    I honestly don’t know off the top of my head.
    I would write them and ask.
    Also you can get blades that do NOT have the radious as well. You just have to request them.
