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

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.

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
I will assume that would be the same for most if not all.
Why reprogram the CNC if you dont have too

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.

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

Default Heel size?

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!!!




Right then... carry on...

Default Decimal Rulers

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...
