    Never force anything- just use a bigger hammer.

    My diagram reads 2.135 width on the pocket.You'er right there.I would work on the neck heel.Seems the least invasive. Also I. have .69 depth and 3.002 on the length.If you are in the that ballpark I wouldn't monkey with the pocket.

    I managed to make it fit! Ended up sanding down the neck pocket.

    I know some people suggested sanding off the gloss on the neck, but there wasn’t much there, to be honest.

    Now, i’ve just got to finish the rest of it. Thanks for all the help, tips and laughs.
