Hey Adam on ibbz there's a sticky thread about all set ups and measurements of ibanez guitars.
Maybe it could helps you .

Did you actually just suggest I visit the Ibby forum??? Where's the twitch icon when I need it! I can't see it on my blackberry!!!

Yeah, I'm trying to sell some Ibby parts.....a friend told a member there about em. I had to go on there to retrieve his PM. I hadn't been there for awhile.......man if it's possible, that place sucks even more now than it did before!!

Adam, try Jemsite......they're a pretty good bunch of guys over there.

Adam, do you have a set of digital calipers?
If not, you're pretty much screwed finding out on your own.
Most of the measurements on the web,
and all the conversion sites deal in decimals. :doh:

I don't know of anywhere you can find a ruler that deals in decimals.
Which is the reason why I use both metric and imperial measurements when building guitars. :eusa_danc

If you have a ruler that can do mm, here's some of the breakdown for the JEM and UV necks. A lot of other ones thrown in there too.

How do you know all that stuff?

No wonder you laughed at me when
I said I used metric and inches!

we have digital readouts on the mills and when we do drawings we have to enter it in as dec. for the workers:thumbs:
Just more stuff taking up room in the brain instead of guitar info :doh:

You could always divide the denominator into the numerator as well to get the decimal....:eusa_whis

Ok I'm real confused now! I can't figure out what is what. I have a body with a 2-3/16" heel route and I want to find a 24 fret 25.5" scale neck for it. I was thinking I dig the bound RG necks with the "sharkfin" inlays so thought I'd find out what heel size they were. Now I'm just confused hahaha :icon_lol:

Hey Cappy, my RG520 is 2-3/16" at the heel and it tapers out to that from 2-1/8" at the 20th fret. I believe it will work. :thumbs:

RBS Welcome back!!

Adam I measured mine too but 1 is a SA and the other is a Voy. both are 2-3/16 also :thumbs:
I will assume that would be the same for most if not all.
Why reprogram the CNC if you dont have too :icon_wink

Yeah, but how do you convert the other way around....decimals from the web to fractions that I need?
I guess I could ask my wife, the math teacher. :doh:

Just remember Adam, most Ibanez necks have a square "tele style" heel, not a rounded "strat style" heel. :icon_wink

It depends... For work a wedge sole or pumps are sensible. For evenings it's usually an elegant 3" strap, but for sexy time, it's 6" spikes all the way!!! :eusa_danc


:eek:

Right then... carry on... :eusa_shhh

Referring to an earlier post on page 1, you can get double-sided machinist rulers with fractions on one side and decimals on the other. The decimal graduations are usually 10ths and 100ths of an inch. These are available in lengths ranging from 6" to 24" or more. Starrett, General and Craftsman are a few manufacturers.

As an afterthought, I realize that this doesn't solve the fraction-decimal conversion problem. However, hardware stores have quick-glance conversion cards roughly the size of a playing card that are often free, or very cheap that you can keep with your tool kit.

conversion for what?.. 5/8..5 divided by 8 = 0.625... if .5 = 1/2 (which you should know as a human being by now) and .75 is 3/4 (which is right there with the 1/2 thing when it comes to being known), then in between 1/2 and 3/4, is 5/8.. which is 1/8 smaller than 3/4.. which is 1/4 away from half.. therefore, in incriments of 1/8's, which is half of a 1/4, which is half of a half.. which is .5 (do the math) you find that .5 + .125 (if you did the math, you'd know that's an 1/8th) is .625.. 5/8.. get it.. now find 3/8 using the same principal.. very easy when you think of it.. you can get it all down to 16ths if you wanted to.. or further........................................... .................... what the hell did i just say?.. i just read it.. how confusing.. sheesh.. no wonder no-one knows this stuff.. .................................................. . well.. i read it again... i get it now.. good explanation...

Daffy....Yooooooo'rrreeeee Despicable!!:icon_lol:
Really, I didn't know ALL of that stuff. Of course I knew the quarter measurments. Nice to know, BUT I WANT A CHEAT SHEET.

I am copying this to my hard drive for future reference, otherwise I will still have to ask my wife.

That's what I need to know Richard! I needz a cheet sheet. :icon_cool

BTW, welcome to Shred! Now, don't post 10 times and then leave. Hate it when new dudes do that. Stay awhile. :thumbs:

@ toneseeker: Similar to axebuilder, I have decimal equivalents etched into my brain in 1/64" increments from my job. I had completely forgotten the method described by ibanezed4yrs. I'm glad to have been reminded of it, though. Anyway, 'nuff said.
