Yeah, you're right. I'm sure that the angle needs to be reduced if the Floyd will be installed in a recessed pocket, or "well". From what I can gather, the basic rout is made for the trem itself from the front as well as the spring cavity/trem block from the rear. The well rout can be done after this if needed or necessary. There is very little information to be had for Floyd installation in a carved top guitar, so I'm sort of winging it here. I did come across this article: http://www.mylespaul.com/threads/installing-a-floyd-rose.241653/ which shows checking the clearance height for 5/8" at the bridge location. From what I recall, that's pretty much the same as checking clearance for a TOM. In that thread, the OP did not rout a well, so I hope my thinking is correct on this. Personally, I like the look of a well, but if it isn't strictly necessary (like for pulling up on the bar), then I probably won't go to too much trouble to accomodate the well. What I AM conerned with is that I completely spaced the pickup layout when I routed the pup cavities. I had intended to move the bridge pickup rout about 1/4" north. I do plan to modify the trem rout to leave a little extra meat near the stud locations. I'm hoping to do a lot of the layout, etc just by clamping the neck into position. The neck has already been fitted, but the angle could be adjusted if necessary. I also think that I can make the trem routs before I glue in the neck assuming that preliminary guestimations turn out well. Seems this would be easier than after gluing it in. Any input on this is really appreciated, like I said, I am totally winging this. I've asked a few questions around the forum and have a few key pieces of info. I think if I just work the problem little by little, it will become clearer as I go.
