Hi guys, thinking I'd like to change the fingerboard radius of my Variax Standard from the stock 14" to 10". Fenders at 9.5" are very comfortable for me to play on, and I just bought my first PRS that feels super great with its 10" radius. I haven't found a replacement Yamaha neck that has a 10" radius so now I'm going get the appropriate tools ($350+ stewmac, ouch!) and give it a shot. I have a few questions that perhaps someone can answer for me: * Does Yamaha/Line 6 Variax Standard builders glue in their frets? * Does a radius change affect the Variax electronics in any way? I wouldn't think so but good to ask I think. Since I am going to have to remove the frets anyhow, thought I would put in some jumbo stainless steel since I really like playing on it and it lasts forever. As a footnote, I have done nut slot, refret and setup work a few times so not too fearful doing the radius, but any helpful advice is welcomed. Thanks!
