Ahead of the Curve: What is a Compound Radius?


Greetings, fellow guitar enthusiasts! Today, we delve into the intricacies of the compound radius, a pivotal element in electric guitar neck design. Join us on this informative journey as we unravel the science behind its allure and explore how the KLOS F-Series neck seamlessly integrates this design marvel.

Decoding the Compound Radius: A Fusion of Comfort and Precision:
The compound radius isn't just a stylistic choice; it's a carefully engineered blend of comfort and precision. Imagine a fretboard that seamlessly transitions between vintage curves and modern flatness. Closer to the headstock, it offers a vintage feel, perfect for expressive bends and chord work. As you move towards the body, the flatter surface facilitates effortless playing and low action, catering to a spectrum of playing styles.

Introducing the KLOS F-Series Neck: Elevating Performance and Endurance:
Enter the KLOS F-Series neck – a carbon fiber masterpiece designed to augment the compound radius experience. For the F-Series, we use a compound radius of 10-14". Let's delve into the technical aspects that set this neck apart and enhance the overall performance.


Strength Reinvented:
  • Constructed with a remarkable strength-to-weight ratio, the F-Series neck ensures durability without compromising on playability. The carbon fiber composition offers unprecedented resilience against wear, making it an enduring companion for any guitarist.
    Stability Redefined:
    • Setting up your guitar has never been more stable. Once you adjust the truss rod and action to your liking, the F-Series neck maintains its position reliably. Say goodbye to concerns about temperature and humidity fluctuations affecting your neck – this neck provides a consistent and stable platform for your playing needs.
      Sonic Evolution:
      • Beyond its structural prowess, the F-Series neck introduces a composite fretboard that emulates the rich tones of ebony wood. This addition enhances the guitar's tonal characteristics, offering a diverse sonic palette to explore.

        Elevate Your Musical Exploration:
        The compound radius, when coupled with the innovation of the KLOS F-Series neck, becomes a powerful tool for musicians. This neck not only withstands the test of time but also contributes to the evolution of your sound. As you embark on your musical journey, consider the harmonious fusion of design and durability that the compound radius and KLOS F-Series neck bring to the table. Happy playing!
