Neck Change...

Recommended Posts

Hey, I have bought a neck for my project guitar which is a 22 fret kramer copy. Only problem is the project guitar is a 21 fret neck. I'm not sure whether the new one will fit into it. So if it doesn't, any tips on changing the neck pocket to suit?

Does the new neck fit into the existing neck pocket? If so, put it in place (you don't have to bolt it in yet if it sits firmly in there) and measure from the nut to the 12th fret and then measure the scale length (nut to saddle). If the scale length is twice the nut to 12 measurement (+/- room for intonation adjustment) you shouldn't have a problem.

If it isn't, you'll have to rout a new neck pocket in a position where it will be.....or move the bridge to a position where it will be.

If the new neck heel doesn't fit into the existing neck pocket, you'll obviously need to re-rout.
