Replacement neck slightly too short.
Hello, following situation:
I have a Yamaha RBX-260 with an broken head (unfixable, I think, but thats another problem) and a other neck that fits reasonably well in the neck pocket. Unfortunately, the neck is 35 mm shorter (measured from nut) then the original one. :rolleyes:
I could move the bridge 15 mm down and the neck 5 mm up(although I don't think thats a good idea), but thats still not enough.
Are there very compact bridge devices I could try or does someone has an other idea? :help:
Are the necks of the same scale?......Same number of frets?
Measure both necks from the nut to the 12th fret....Mutiply that number x2 and you have the scale.
Doesn't sound like your replacement neck will work with what you are describing.
No fingerboard extensions on the necks.
I've found that some bridges are not only 'shorter' from the saddle to the ball seat, but some are 1/2" or so 'shorter' from the front side to the back side.
Some are 2 9/16" or so, and some are less than 2".
Gotta look around, tho.
It sound like Camaro's replacement neck, although the same scale, but with fewer frets, came from a bass with a longer body design which allowed the neck pocket to sit further forward from the bridge(compensating for not being a 24 fret neck)
Just my thoughts......Pictures would help.
yeah, this ain't gonna work without a bunch of surgery and an ugly, mis-matched result.
Ok, convinced. I'm not going to use this Neck.
Especially after watching this video on bridge placement I realized that this is far more complicated then I thought.
Thanks for the Input! :bassist:
