  1. Hello All, Another newbie question for you. I am starting my first build. I have drawings for a PRS Custom 22. Since this is my very first go at this, I am concerned about going with the set neck since it seems that would be a "get it right the first time" kind of deal. The neck pocket doesn't seem that large and the neck goes under the neck pickup. I was thinking about slightly changing the design so that the top cutaway is extended just a little bit and then curve up to the pocket and making the neck pocket extend out a little so that I can bolt the neck onto the body with 4 bolts. Does that make sense? Anyone see an issue with extending the neck pocket so that more of the neck sits in the pocket? I am assuming that if I keep the neck the same length, then I shouldn't be changing the scale length at all. Or do you believe that the current neck pocket is sufficient to bolt? It doesn't look like it since the pickup is in the same spot. Thank you all for your advice.
