  • .005" brass sheets for saddle radius adjustments

    Would this be a good size to use for shimming individual saddles on a Floyd Rose to make the bridge radius match the neck?

      These might help.

      FYI, though, making the radius of the saddles perfectly match the actual mathematical radius of the fretboard might make it difficult to play on the outer strings. Usually bridges get set a bit flatter than the fretboard for ideal playing. That's why a proper Floyd Rose branded R2 nut has a 10" radius the bridge it came with would have a 12" radius.

      Of course, this doesn't always perfectly match the individual preferences of every player.

      What's the radius of the fretboard in question?

        It is an Ibanez Wizard 2 neck. 16" radius.
