Mex Strat with Floyd Rose......are they still comfortable to play considering the bridge can't be radiused to the 9.5" fretboard?

My definition of comfortable is a strat with the string height matching the radius. I'm sure I could adapt through of the setup wasn't too far from that.

I have a MIM FR Strat, it's one of my best players, but I always thought it had a proper radius. My guitar isn't handy, so I can't check. It's definitely comfortable for me.

The strings flatten and widen at the bridge on a Strat even with modern 'narrow' spacing. (1 11/16" -> 2 1/16" i believe)

Floyd Rose built and designed the bridge all around Strats and the various configs/setups.. I think you will find yourself having to get more used to the trem response and pitch control of the FR than the string spacing
