What are some of the popular radius for fretless basses? I am seeing mostly 15 & 16" for fretted instruments. I have seen frettless Music Men that see much flater.

I have no idea what the radius is on my SX Jazz Bass fretless or my Michael Kelly fretless Club Custom acoustic is but they both feel great. I have big hands.

After a lot of back and forth on the question of radius, is settled on an 18" radius on the cocobolo fretboard. While I was arguing with myself, I built an adjustable radius sanding block. It works well to produce a sanded fretboard in radius from 12 to 20 inches.
