no neck plate, just screws and washers

Recommended Posts


i have a problem with my neck plate and wanted to try using washers instead. is there anything specific about this that i might need to know

i am thinking that i will need shorter screws for one thing. any specific type of washer required? what about spacing?

I'm not a fan of neck plates personally, not that I've ever built a bolt on anyway so I'm no expert but adding extra material to make the heel thicker is not logical to me in terms of comfort. A lot of builders use screws with bushes that look nice, like these: https://amzn.to/2CKRMcm if I would building a bolt on, I would go for something like that so I can do a bit of carving to make the heel a bit more comfortable
