    Re-radiusing a fret board?

    Is it possible to have the PTC re-radius a McCarty from 10" to 12"? I would imagine that the stop tail bridge would need to be modified/replaced along with the refret etc.

    I would imagine that this could get pricey. Maybe better off looking for a Santana with the 11.5".

    Gotta a quote from the PTC. On the fence at the moment. They can go to 11.5". Based on the cost estimate, it would most likely be a push if I got the work done vs flipping it and buying a Santana.

    If it influences your decision, not only is the Santana a different body shape, the trem is going to make it sound different, 24 fret PRSi have a different feel than 22 fretters, and the neck carve is supposedly much larger on a Santana. It's a significantly different guitar.

    Isn't the santana 24.5 scale too?

    Id expect a reradius to change the look of your inlays a bit too.
