    16.5mm on the standard GT-7s... Not too sure about the Dicken's model.

    The BD7 has the same spacing at the bridge (I'm pretty sure they both carry the exact same bridge). It is tighter at the nut, however.

    16" on the GT-7. I can't imagine people prefering a 10" Fenderish radius on a 7 string.
     

  9. phew, tell me about it. i can barely stand it on my 4 string fenders :smug:

    The GT-BD7 is 2 1/2 inches at the nut.


    You're welcome. :)
