Neck/Fretboard radius: Repost from A Barfield

Postby ChrisClark on Sun Feb 04, 2007 2:23 pm

Would you happen to know the radii used for the fretboard and neck in the Time advance 3's? Also the width at nut and 22nd fret?

Thanks for posting.

The Advance 3's have a 9" radius, as all 25 1/2" scale Time Guitars. The 24 1/2" scale guitars have a 12" radius.
This is the fretbroad radius. The Neck radius [back of the neck, I'm guessing] is a lot more complicated and beyond this post.
When I have time I'll measure my AT-3 and post.
All Time Guitars have the same neck widths, 24 1/2' or 25 1/2" scale length.
The shape and dimensions of the Time guitar necks were not changed since I can remember.
As I said, when I have more time I'll measure the neck width and post.

And again, A Barfield, Thanks
Chris

Neck Dimensions.
On my AT-3 #424 [with the finish on]:

Nut 1.69" x 0.81"
12th 2.06" x 0.93"
22nd 2.23"
Image
Every Time guitar neck has these same dimensions.

On the 25 1/2" scale guitar the measure is taken at the 22nd fret and on the 24 1/2" scale the same measurement is found at the 24th fret.
The length of the fretboard from the nut to the 23nd fret on a 25 1/2" scale is within a 1/16" of the length of a 24 1/2" scale measured from the nut to the 25th fret. The 23rd and 25th fret here are actually the end of the fingerboard.
Confused? It's magic I tell you!
