This is good information to know.
Do you guys know what would be the typical offset?
I have several NOS necks that were left over from the fire sales along with some other blems and oddities, looked perfect and I could not figure out why they were left behind, then I tried to put on a Floyd nut and realized the holes were offset by a full millimeter. It seemed too much, so I figured these must be factory rejects left behind. I have plugged them, came out looking good, but haven't yet redrilled them, mostly because busy with non-guitar stuff, but also admittedly slightly I'm nervous for the first one just to make sure I don't screw it up. I got some reprieve from my other stuff and ready now to get back on these Kramer builds, so next step is to redrilll new holes for the Floyd nut mount. I was just going to center them up (actually already have them marked), so I'm really, really glad I am reading this!!! Now that I am better educated after reading this, of course I want to drill them with the proper offset. Seeking informed opinions about what that measurement would be? I guess I could measure my real Kramers and take the average of them to see what offsets like were coming out of the factory for properly-drilled ones, but there is so much expertise here I am wondering if anybody just knows the proper offset and can tell it to me?
Thanks very much!
ive already done to right handed necks,all i had to do was file less then 1/16 on either hole oppsite of each side and it fits perfect,i clamped the nut down tight and its been fine on both,the amount removed was very,very slight.
but if u feel like u ned to redrill,then u shld for peace of mind,i got both my rightys for cheap,so i didnt want to redrill them and possible screw that up,all my lefty amercians are my babys and they fit fine,
i just wanted to have a couple reverse's for fun and looks.
