Item:202975276574Tapered maple shim used to change the angle of a bolt-on neck. To change the angle of a bolt-on neck, players and repair shops have used shims for years. We've seen everything from matchbook covers and cigarette packets to guitar picks stuck in neck joints. Those kinds of shims create an unwanted gap under the heel of the neck: a dead air space where humidity condenses to swell the wood. This gap may cause an upward kink in the neck, and many players feel they lose tone unless firm contact is maintained between the neck and the body. Full-contact and precisely tapered, these shims offer 3 different degrees for changing the pitch of any bolt-on neck. 0.25-degree shim offers the most versatility. Stacking them will let you really dial in the neck angle you're after. 0.5-degree shim is the one you'll reach for most often. It works great on Fender and many other solidbodies. 1-degree shim is great for guitars with a Tune-o-matic bridge or Floyd Rose. Taper specs (approximate) 0.25-degree shim tapers from 0.030" to 0.019" (0.76mm to 0.48mm) 0.5-degree shim tapers from 0.028" to 0.008" (0.71mm to 0.20mm) 1-degree shim tapers from 0.060" to 0.010" (1.52mm to 0.25mm) Dimensions (guitar shims) Shaped: 2-3/16" x 3" (55.56mm x 76.12mm) Blank: 2-1/4" x 3" (57.15mm x 76.12mm) Dimensions (bass guitar shims) Shaped: 2-1/2" x 3-7/8" (63.50mm x 98.43mm) Blank: 2-3/4" x 3-7/8" (69.86mm x 98.43mm) Shaped shims fit most neck pockets with a rounded heel. With the guitar version, you can trim along the lasered line to fit the shim to a pocket with a flat heel, like a Tele. Blank shims are designed for odd screw spacings, smaller neck pockets, and custom designs like the Fender Micro-Tilt™.Condition:New, MPN:2130/31/35, Brand:StewMac
