    I am building a 35" scale 18mm at the bridge 28 position 6 string bass. I have to create the neck template. How many mm wide would you make the neck template at the 28th position? Thanks...Tom

    The ideal solution would be to actually draw it up on a piece of paper dude. Then you would be sure before you start...
