I Need Some Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Well, I got three question, for one topic.

1) I know it has been talk a LOT, but... could anyone give me the measures in mm of the deepness of an standard angled neck pocket? I need to fit a TOM in a Flying V.

Basically, what i need to know is the angle in this way: How many milimeters it goes down for each 10 centimeters?

I hope this makes any sense, my english is not so helpful

2) What is the deepness en the Jazzmaster´s neck pocket? (In mm, if youcan )

3) Anyone have ESP explorer blueprints, sketches, or something like that? (it is the guitar used by james hetfield in the 90´s)

Thanks already, links and info will be appreciated. I know maybe someone already posted all this info, but in these days i barely have the time to review the forum...

See ya, and thanks!

Um...for every 10 centimeters, you get 100 millimeters...that's the beauty of the metric system.

But I'm guessing you're asking something else.

In fact, you seem to be asking three different questions about three different guitars?

In that case, I'd do some searching through the forums first --the TOM angle question has been answered before. If you really can't find an answer, then post specific topics, you're more likely to get helpful responses.

And give more detail -- is this Flying V a new build or an existing guitar? What kind of bridge does it have now?

I was under the impression that Jazzmasters use the same type of neck pocket and depth as other Fenders, but I could be wrong --but the depth of the neck pocket all depends on the heel of the neck you're using. That's why it helps to give more detail about what you're trying to do.

You´re right, sorry. I´m kinda new in this forum stuff, but the more i get here the more i see that you guys are serious, and always willing to really help, so i guess a topic so vague like this is no use.

On top of that, my english is not too good, and i have a har time expressing myself in the right way when it comes to technical chat...

So let me resume this.

- Let´s forget about the explorer drawing and stuff, it took nothing but a little search on the forum for me to find them.

-The jazzmaster matter.... This is a guitar that i´m building, and i plan to use a standard fender neck. But my question was regarding the JM´s bridge, wich i think is a little taller than the strat type bridge, and with the neck being the same as the strat, i supposed that this would result in a less deep neck pocket.

-The TOM matter.... you got it right, that wasn´t what i was trying to ask xD Let´s see if my english allows me to say it right...

If i have a neck pocket 10 centimeters long, and in the bridge side i have it in a deepness, let´s say, 15 mm... at the other end (10 cms away) and according to the angle), what deepness it should have?

Please forgive me for bringing this up again, but it´s really hard for me to seriously come up with this myself, i´m not an experienced builder, and, actually, this forum helps me a lot, but when it comes, for example, to this inches/milimeters stuff, it gets really complicated for me....

Sorry again, and thanks!!!

No doubt you'll be able to find the full specs for the jazzmaster somewhere...but if all else fails, you have the choice between:

Let the bridge decide : that is, route your neck pocket according to the height of the bridge.

or

Let your desired string height (above the body and pickups) decide. In which case, you can recess the bridge slightly, if you prefer the strings to be closer to the body.

And your English is fine...it's just that sometimes when people post, I get the feeling they expect us to read their minds...which ain't always easy

None of us will be able to give you a straight forward answer about the slope of the neck pocket(which is what I assume you want, since you have the rise and want the run, correct?). That link provided has good instructions on how you can draw a full scale plan with the bridge and scale length you want, to determine your required neck angle. It's really simple, so don't stress over it too much. You just have to realise that neck angle varies from guitar to guitar.

peace,

russ
