Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    I have an allparts replacement precision neck. I'm looking at putting in hipshot ultralites. Do I measure the hole size from the front of the headstock (decal side), or from the back? The measurement from the front is 11/16ths, but the measurement from the back is 9.5/16ths. I'm not sure which size to go with for the ultralites.

    Why not contact Hipshot and ask?
