    as title says. I have searched and searched, but cannot find an exact number. my searching skills may be poor. It is the original, MM pickup passive style MTD Kingston that came out in the early 2000's

    I need a radius block because I am going to de-fret and I want to sand as close to the stock radius as possible.

    thank you, bass minds.

    I'm sure Michael Tobias would be kind enough to tell you if you asked him. He's generous and accessible.

    Right you are! I emailed their support and he personally responded. It's a 10-14" compound radius!

    Would love to know how you manage to do a compound radius.

    They say that you start at one end using one and the other end using the other, and blend the two. I'm sure practice will be more difficult than the explanation.
