hey all, im getting ready to build a razorback and it has an original floyd rose tremelo, what neck to body angle would it have, if any. im pretty sure there shouldn't be an angle, but im wondering if that is so?

i know this sounds odd, but i have mine pulled up so when im doing my dimebag-esque squeals, i can go higher, and also to kick my awfull habit of dive bombing

It depends on the dimensions of the Floyd Rose bridge. Honestly, buy the bridge first, and draw out a full size plan so you can figure it out.

well i do have plans for the razorback i bout from guitarplansunlimited.com he's an awsome guy, and he says the necks on warmoth will work so i have an idea for that, as for the trem, im looking at a 1-11/16 with wide string spacing, and im sure you've seen an original floyd rose before. the neck pocket of the guitar is 5/8 of an inch deep, so i dont know if that leaves high enough action for the trem to be flush to the body, what do you think? (sorry im just not into drawing a full scale diagram.)

Don't build a guitar then. Seriously, if you're not down with drawing something out to figure out your problems, then why take the time to build the guitar right?

+1 Algee. If you cant be bothered spending ten minutes drawing out the plans, you'll never finish the guitar. No one can answer your question, its impossible, because of all the varying differences in neck joint depths, neck sizes, recess depths, trem dimensions, etc, etc, etc

Erm, you've never drawn out fullscale plans, how would you know how long it takes? It does literally take 10 minutes to do dude.

Good luck.
