    Does anyone know what the typical fretboard radius for a six string bass would be? I defretted my Brice, and it plays fine, though there's some buzz in some spots, and I'm thinking that if I used a radius block, it would help to cure that problem. Thanks!

    I think it generally ranges from 12 to 16 for a 6 string. You're going to have to measure it before you buy (or make) a radius block.
