brian d Posted May 8, 2005 Report Share Posted May 8, 2005 The idea of recessing a bridge to reduce neck angle was mentioned on another thread. I'm at the planning stages of a 24 3/4 inch scale, extended tenon set neck joined to body at fret 22, 6 string. When I draw out the side at full size I find that the neck angle comes to 6 degrees. (Thanks to Perry Ormsby for his diagram in another thread that shows how to do this part of the design) (How do I attach an image to show the design?) I can reduce this angle by raising the neck relative to the body, but then the connection between the neck and the tenon becomes very thin as the tenon will stay below the 3/4" lam top. So, what about recessing the TOM bridge? On the pro side, it would reduce the neck angle, and bring the strings closer to the bridge pickup, so it doesn't have to sit high of the body. Are there any cons? It's string through body, so I don't need to worry about the height relative to the tailpiece. How would I go about recessing a TOM bridge? Thanks in advance, Brian.
