riffster Posted June 2, 2008 Report Share Posted June 2, 2008 (edited) My Rg Prestige's neck pocket on the bass side is 2 and 13/16 inches and the treble side is 1 and 13/32 inches. The RG has a 25.5 scale. Heres a link to the back of an RG I like the neck pocket, so I wanted to find the structural equivalency since I am building a 25 scale guitar. Here's my formula: nut to neck bass body meet (25.5 scale) / Total board length (25.5 scale end of pocket) = X (25 scale nut to bass body meeting) / Total board length (25 scale end of pocket). The fingerboard does not extend over the neck. I did the same formula for the treble side, changing the distances of course. The neck pocket on the guitar I am building with the 25 inch scale would have a neck pocket on the bass side of 2.75 inches and 1 and 3/8 inches of the treble side. It is structurally equivalent, but is it too small of a neck pocket for a bolt on build? I am 95% sure that the pocket would be large enough, but I just wanted to make sure. Any comments would be helpful. Edited June 2, 2008 by riffster Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
