Did the neck come on that body originally??


Yes

I didn't sand it yet.... I don't want to ruin the finish =)

Any other ideas?

Then something's wrong. What's the depth of the neck pocket? Compared to your other Kramers?

I´d do a full shim then (like the suggested StewMac) before meddling with the finish :thumbs .

Makes sense. They look good. This should sort it out and make your nice axe perfectly playable at last :thumbs .

Thanks!

I actually went with this instead,

http://www.rockler.com/maple-by-the-piece-1-8-thickness

considering I need 1/8" height adjustment. I would need 3 shims at 9.99 each from aperio guitar to get the height i need. Now I can make the perfect shim. And play this baby!

That's too deep. Useally it's 5/8" for a flush mounted Floyd.

I had a focus body that I had to shim an 1/8" because the neck pocket was too deep. Yard stick was perfect :thumbs
