How does a compound radius affect intonation i.e will there be a problem intonating a guitar?

I am looking at buying one of the new Fender HSS strats that have a compound radius.

Since I am spoiled with both a strobo stomp , and BFTS on my guitars I was hoping there will be no issues.

Thoughts?

Hi bean438,
As long as the frets are located accurately, the nut slots are cut correctly and the saddle heights follow the radius at the last fret, there should be no problems.
I'm sure Fender are very capable of doing a great job on those fretboards.

I have no doubts as to Fender's ability. I was concerned with BFTS and a compound radius since BFTS is very precise.

Thanks for the response, i am at ease. Now if I can only get Fender to make all their guitars BFTS from the factory........

Hi bean438,
If you're looking to install the BF Tuning System on one of these guitars, it will need a BF nut with slots that will match the radius.
