    I think I would be a natural on one, I play too light when I'm playing fast, the speed surpassed the strength long ago and I constantly have to work out my hand.

        You're probably right.

          As we know, Dave hasn't been to the gym, let along gripped a heavy bar lately, so....not a problem he has.

                I mostly worked worked past it but I practically quit playing for several years so I'm back in the same boat now, just not so bad.

                  What did your friend pay for customs, what was the total?

                    I’ve got 2 guitars with scalloped fingerboards from a phase I have long since outgrown. But my takeaway is that a nicely scalloped board with well crowned medium frets doesn’t feel much different than a so-cal style neck with 6100 frets. Definitely most noticeable between frets 1-3 and open chording takes a bit more attention to pressure. But definitely from the 5th fret up, feels close to my regular necks with 6100 frets.

                      i don't know what the going rate is now, but when i got mine in 2014, i was charged about $35 in fees upon delivery.

                        This may be the reason that Vai has his necks scalloped the way they are

                          That is exactly my feeling as well.
