Neck pocket route to big....


Recommended Posts

I just got a tele body and upon receiving it I have carefully measure the neck pocket dimensions only to find out that it is not the standard Fender neck route dimensions. It measure 2 1/4" wide and 11/16" deep. I was wondering if it would be easier to add material to the neck itself or to the neck pocket. I fortunately work in a cabinet shop and have access to materials and machinery to get this done just haven't ever had to do it and thought I would get some input.I have some .5 mil wood edge banding that I think would be good to use in layers added to the neck or pocket to take care of the width issue and I can cut a piece of material to the length and width to cover the bottom of the pocket or back of neck. What would you do?

Thanks in advance for your input on this one!
