"Hi BrianQ, thanks for that. The back also plays a part in sound production too, he might have to rethink that one as well ha ha.  To proove that point, the other day a mate played a new build of mine commenting that it did not sound as good as…"

Tom T replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Back Angle
"One or two degrees of back angle on the neck (I.e. the angle between the fret board and the box top) will allow the bridge to be high enough to produce a good break angle over it while also allowing the strings to stay closer to the fret board up…"

Taffy Evans replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Back Angle
"Hi Brent, the back angle or neck set is important in determining the bridge height. This will give more or less break angle of the strings over the bridge, depending on the back angle. More or less break angle equals more or less loading [downward…"

Back Angle

Lots of videos and attention on building back angle into your Guitars.What success have you had and is the extra effort worth it? I have been struggling with trying to incorporate it into two recent builds and just go back to a level neck. Also, when attaching neck in box with blocks at each end, is it best to keep both the same height? Lots of questions, trying to fine tune the processthanksSee More

Bruce Young replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Neck Thickness Build Up
"Thoughts run to either hardwood veneer available at major lumber yard, or better yet, a scrap of 1/16 veneer from a cabinet shop. There is also 1/16 hardwood hobby ply out there, used in RC airplane building. "

"Hi, thanks Daryl. I had this idea that the pickup sat flat on the top of the lid. If as you say I still envision an easy fix. Without a photo I give up. Taff"

"I think he means the thru neck part of the neck is too high Taff, and his pup won't sink into the box enough, that,s how I read it anyway."
