I just assembled my tele build and my 6 saddle gotoh bridge saddles are sitting quite high to compensate for some fret out past the 12th fret. The action is too low (unintentionally) and it seems I don’t have the tolerances to finely adjust the saddle heights to beat the fret buzz much less match the fretboard radius. The neck is from warmoth (modern build, if that matters) and has relief. I don’t have proper measuring tools but using the trick of fretting the first and last fret to gauge the action at the 12 fret shows some decent play. I'm gonna make the educated guess that this is not a truss rod issue. The body is XGP built to vintage specs according to them. I suspect that the neck pocket just wasn't routed deep enough for my neck or wasn't routed completely level even though the sides of the pocket snugly fit the neck. I added a shim (2 stacked 32pt business cards) at the nut end of the neck pocket to see if that would help & it did. I was able to lower the saddles to a 'normal' height and get playability all up & down the neck with the action as I like. The big draw back is the resulting forward angle of the neck and of course the gaping hole in the pocket that will potentially affect the neck in the long term. This Haze Guitars article sums up my issue. So yeah, it's now in a playable state but man, this look doesn't sit right with me... Questions: Am I correct in assuming the pocket depth/angle is the main culprit here? Seems like routing away a hair or two deeper would be the "correct" solution but I'm deathly afraid of touching that critical area to the point I taped it up before painting and have never touched it with sandpaper. Am I missing something else that could be causing this? Can I use stew mac's full contact shims but reversed? Thanks in advance!
