Neck Fitting

I have to work both pockets to get a proper alignment, will use one center screw, countersunk, that can be extra retention afterwards.

Checking the back plate fit. I am good to go.

1st Setup

Using two banjo tuners to check alignment, while a set of Gotoh  tuners are shipped to me.

Pocket is getting close

I have to remove that area by the pickup, it is cramping the pickup on the top side.


Radius leveling frets at 16", installed the new Gotoh's

Frets dressed and polished, neck ready to install

Top pickups

The screws sent with the pickups are too short, and make the pickups stand too tall, and they have poor retention and I will compensate with longer bigger screw.

The spring has to be compressed all the way with the orig screws

That is as low is it will go with the small screws, it would hit the strings.
So I will pull the guard, change screws, widen the cavity and go back together for another test

About that much will be plenty

Now we have retention and height capability

Now all I will need is a 5 degree wedge on the treble side of the pocket to snug things up and one 015" shim under the tongue to get a little better action.

Stopping here for stringing talk.
Are we putting the re-entrant on this neck?
