Neck Joint


Recommended Posts

I am about to work on my neck joint. I was originally planning on doing a RG550 style neck joint because it is what I am used to and what I know. The pocket has been routed and the neck is pretty much shaped.

I have been considering using those ferrules like you see in the AANJ type joint. Maybe even contouring the pocket, but I'm not sure about that yet.

Do you think it's possible to do this? I know the AANJ necks/bodies have a larger pocket so I'm not sure if I'd be weakening the neck by doing something like this.

Anyone done this before? Is it worth doing or should I just go with the neck plate and standard RG type joint?

I too was thinking of doing the same on my explorer...because the plate doesnt fit the back of the neck too well...and it adds width to the neck...so in order to use the ferrules do you have to use shorter screws? because the screws i have now(standard strat screws) would go well into if not thru the fretboard.

Right - Warmoth sells the shorter screws but I'm not sure if they are short enough for ferrules - I think they are actually for the treble side of an RG type neck joint.

So the JEM AANJ pocket is the same (3 inches) in length? I thought it was longer than that.
