Now I get it.

To be precise, it’s a 2” radius.

I bought a hunk of 2” dowel and cut it up for body sticks. It’s the perfect size to get a good grip.

What's really cool is that, because of the way I set up the tone circuit (.01mfd cap) when the tone is cranked all the way back on the bridge pickup the guitar takes on this snotty, midrangey tone through an overdriven amp. It's just rude!

And along the way on the tone pot, the guitar gets pretty credible Gibson P90 tone.
