I've seen guitar descriptions include a measurement for fingerboard radius such as 7.25", 10", etc ... and I'm not sure I understand what this represents. Ovation doesn't list theirs, from what I've seen. Any education is appreciated, but please type slow because I'm easily confused. ;)

google is your friend! :) check out: Guitar Neck Fingerboard Radius for a great definition.

Basically, imagine the width of the fingerboard as part of the radius of a circle. The larger the radius of that circle, the flatter your fingerboard will be.

I google quickly, but I made sure to type it slowly. Hope that helps!

It used to be published. I've forgotten what it is, 10 maybe or 12? Fenders from the 50's were 7.5 but they're less now, maybe 10 as well?

Thanks, I get it. I suppose I should've googled it, but clearly the information comes faster on this board than I could get it through google (did I mention I'm also easily distracted?). :D
