Tell us if you have any problem with the 1st or 5th strings sliding off the end of the frets due to what appears to be an excessive amount of taper . It may just be due to the photo but the taper looks quite drastic to me. Otherwise, it's a super looking instrument. I'm jealous!!!

There is a lot of taper... The radius has a nice compound and the bridge follows the compound approach pretty well. So the fingering attack is more like a Les Paul guitar than a radius fingerboard on a banjo. I am guessing that is the engineering that makes the taper work for the instrument. I will see how it works for me as I get to use it more.
