Radius Neck / Banjo Advice
Student Question

Hi Nick! I´m really pleased with your Nick Picks that arriwed a few days
ago. They improve both tone and speed to my picking. Bye the way, could you tell me what´s the benefit with a radius neck compared with a standard one?

Ross Nickerson answer

Its a personal preference but I believe the radius neck is designed to come up to the natural curve in your hand. If you lay your fingers on the neck in an F shape G chord, you have to apply more pressure on the third and second strings then on the first and fourth, so the neck comes up to help that.

I like it, but not everyone does, it would be best if you could try one someday, most electric guitars have radiused necks, that may help.


Thanks again,
Sincerely,
Ross Nickerson
