    The heel or end closest to the neck pup on the neck route is 2.224 according to the print.So why does everyone say in their advertisements say that it is 2 3/16"?So when you make them for sale,which dimension do you make on the route?Any held would be appreciated.

    I don't have a definite answer for you, but if you have a fender made tele measuring it's neck pocket might help you with your decision.

    That is only 36 thousandths of an inch difference, it would be hard to measure without a micrometer or something similar.

    It's well within tolerance in that dimension, considering you have 2 layers of finish, fret height, string pull, plus a truss rod and adjustable bridge to compensate still to come.

    CNC wouldn't be much more accurate than that.
