kpcrash Posted December 30, 2008 Report Share Posted December 30, 2008 On a one piece neck/fb, if a truss rod is to be 1/4" W X 3/8"D X 23.5" L beneath the fretboard... is it safe to assume that since my neck blank is currently 1.5" thick (haven't even cut the shape yet...) that I simply need to subtract .03710" (9.43 mm) from 1.500 (38.10 mm) and make my rout using 1.4629 as a baseline (thickness minus fretboard thickness of 3/8") so that in the end, I would basically have the following... Total Thickness: 1.5000" FB allowance: .03710" "Neck" thickness: 1.4629" Router Depth: 1.4258" This would seem to leave 3/8" for the fretboard and 3/8" between the "bottom" of the fretboard and truss rod rout. Forgive me if this is overly simplistic, but I just want to be doubly sure as Koch and Hiscock are a little blurry here. Further details: Bass Neck, 34" scale Planned 12-15 degree angled headstock Maple Planned purchase of double-action truss rod with headstock adjustment Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
