GuitarMaestro Posted March 26, 2004 Report Share Posted March 26, 2004 Hi! I have built a body with installed Ibanez Lo Pro Edge Tremolo and I build the complete neck for the guitar. Now it's time to route the neck pocket, but I am not sure how deep to route it. I want to have NO neck angle. Is there a general rule of thumb? I planned to do it that way: 1. Set the floyd to the middle of it's hight adjustment range 2. Measure the height of the middle saddle over the body. 3. Align the neck so that the top of the last fret is as high over the body as the middle saddle of the floyd. Will that work? The problem I have with that method is that if the neck and neck pocket stay completely straight after stringing the guitar up, I can only use about 50% of the Floyds height adjustment range. If I do not do it that way and the neck and neck pocket give a little way, then I won't be able to compensate for it.... What's the common way to solve this problem? Thanks in advance, Marcel Knapp!
