Considering a custom taropatch 8 string concert. Any thoughts about a flat vs radiused fretboard re: ease of playability?

If my 10-string Tiples are flat, which they are, then anything less should be of no concern from a playability perspective.

Flat gets my vote, always.

I like to build everything with a radius, but that's just my personal preference. As far as playability, plenty of much wider fret boards on Classical Guitars are flat, and doesn't cause any worries.

I have a Kiwaya taropatch with a flat fretboard and I find it very easy to play.
