The contour has been slimmed down to a traditional 'C' style measuring 1-11/16" at the nut. The RADIUS neck has 22 frets and uses standard fret spacing. Inspired Instruments has enhanced the fingerboard playability by increasing the sensitivity and improving the shape of the strings and frets.

The YRG connects to a host of mobile devices including the popular iPad to use with GarageBand. It also connects via USB to the MAC and PC. The YRG can be used with most recording and tablature software such as Logic, Reason and Ableton to name a few. Also compatible with Legacy MIDI synthesizer devices via its 5-pin MIDI connector.
