: Hi, Just curious if anybody knows a dimension of contour(roundness of fingerboard). Seems like my fingerboard on 1 bass is flat. Is it just preference? Also anybody know good method for planeing and then planeing for relief i gotta have? thanks

Theoretically, it's possible for you to shape the finger board, but I'd bet a hundred to one you get it wrong. That's a luthier's job.
As for shape - some are rounded, some have a flat bevel under the E.
