    i just bought a boady on ebay and the descriptopn says:

    The width of the neck pocket is 2 & 7/16 inches.

    i want to put a moses graphite j neck in it buttheir site says it's Heel Width : 2.50"

    is there any way i can do it?

    maybye putting a shim in the sides?

    Well, it sounds like you'd need to do the opposite of shimming the sides of the neck pocket. If the neck heel of the Moses neck is 2-1/2" and your bass is 2-7/16", you'd need to shave out 1/16" of the neck pocket to accommodate the Moses.

    Sure it can be done, but do you want to take the risk of it being sloppy or would you prefer a professional to take that risk?
