Neck Angle to Bridge Height Ratio-Wraparound
I have two TonePros nickel intonation adjustable wraparounds that I want to install on two of the set neck Les Pauls I have. They are undrilled for tail and bridge. I understand that I could run into a fretboard height to bridge height relationship problem. In examining the bridge, I find it has plenty of adjustment for height up to the point that it can get tippy and unstable, not to mention just plain ugly. On the other hand, less metal stuck into tonewood usually helps tone and sustain, so I would like to make this work. The relative simplicity is appealing as well.
So, do any of you guitar wizards have the goods on this? Thanks, ole'lefty
(if you need it I can measure the neck angle roughly in comparison with the bridge position angle or lack of angle. Ironically, with all of the precision measuring tools I have, I don't have a long reach depth caliper-if I did , then I could give the relative height of the pup end of the fretboard and the top surface of the belly of the guitar in addition to the angle)--If it helps, the fretboard drops away from the angle of the bridge position at 4.7 degrees-still need to measure relative heights-the fretboard is 13/16th" higher than the bridge position.
