Best Les Paul Style Guitars With 14" Fingerboard Radius in 2024

Here are the top Les Paul style guitars with 14" fingerboard radius. This makes it more similar to Gibson guitars (12'') than Fender (9.5''). It's slightly flatter than most modern Gibson fretboards though, strong>which makes it more comfortable for single notes, bendings and vibratos, but less comfortable for chords./strong>. If you like the playability of a Gibson, which can be described as ''balanced for chords and solos'', and don't care about having slightly less curve for more comfortable solos, you'll like this radius.
