Ghwar Posted December 11, 2005 Report Share Posted December 11, 2005 I bought a replacement neck for my jackson which came with no holes drilled in it whatsoever. i have done this before with my stratocaster, so It was easy to drill the pilot holes. i used a pretty small drill bit this time, then screwed the bolts in a small amount.. then I took the neck back off and did bigger pilots this time.. almost as big and deep as the actual bolts themselves. now i go to bolt the neck back on, and the bolts will go about 1\2 of the way of where they need to go into the neck, except one which will only go about 1\4th of the way. they just get so stubborn and WILL NOT turn, my hand is literally bruised from trying to turn the screwdriver! i really dont know why it's being so stubborn, my strat's neck was higher quality maple then this and the screws went in pretty easily.. took about 5 minutes and i was ready to play, i have been struggling with this for 2 hours! and the worst part is from what i can see now, there is a pretty large gap between the neck and the pocket, like i could fit 4 or 5 sheets of paper in there. will that go away when (or should i say if) the neck bolts actually go all the way in?
