guitarateer Posted November 22, 2006 Report Share Posted November 22, 2006 Hey all, I want to finish fixing this old Japanese strat rip-off. I need help in determining what to do next. The electronics have been fully repaired. The only reason I am not putting it together is 1.) the neck is cracked at the bottom with the bolt holes stripped AND 2.) Without the ability to adjust the strings individually at the bridge, how is proper intonation achieved? The measurements for the 20 fret neck are 682mm(total length), 454mm(top of nut to bottom lenth), 135 (12 fret to bottom length), 450mm (bottom of nut to bottom length), 43mm(width at first fret), 53mm(width at last- 20- fret), 45mm x 35mm (distance between the four bolt holes-- 45mm being up to down). That is it! Is replacing the neck the best choice? Should the spring in the tremelo be replaced? I want this to be a fully functional gig-worth guitar. Don't tell me I can't do it. Where do I go from here? Thanks. Sincerely, guitarateer Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
