I was taking a closer look at my neck pocket this morning and it looks like I don’t have it perfectly flat on the bottom. Sort of dips a little on the left side of the pocket closest to the outside of the body. I don’t think I had my template properly supported. Also turns out the whole pocket is at 11/16 instead of 5/8. I’m thinking that I should probably take it all the way down to the low point. Then it’ll probably be at about 23/32. I think I could probably manage this difference when I set up the bridge eventually but I’m not sure. If not, i’m thinking I’d shim up to the proper height. Does this sound like a good plan? Any other ideas greatly appreciated! View attachment 898982
I personally would opt to plain 1/16+ off the top of the body to maintain a correct geometry without having to shim the neck.
