Best Offset Style Guitars With 13.78" Fingerboard Radius in 2024

Here are the top Offset style guitars with 13.78" 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>
