just seems really strange to have a the bigass 1 3/4 nut with a heel under 2 3/16

both my beretta body and pacer custom are 2 3/16 which i mean sure it will fit byt just seems strange,any thoughts on this>>?

thx

The heel is the same size regardless of the nut size. Just the shaping of the neck pocket for an R5 neck is a bit less tapered on the lower horn side, if at all. So it may or may not fit, depending on how precise the routing is.

Yea i hear what us sayin xxx but ive got several necks and my r2 87 neck is over 2 3/16 by a 16th and my 86 beretta neck is 2 316th with r2 nut, just seems that the r5 nut wld have a bigger heel print like 2 1/4 as my 84 pacer neck is a r5 with a hair under 2 1/4 heel??

But as people have stated before kramer/esp was not exaclty crucial spec's but rather +/- 2 3/16.

Thx for the reply brother

Officially the heel should be Fender size (~56mm) with R5 being less tapered, but I saw both too wide and too narrow pockets and necks as well, the tolerance was not as tight as one would expect/hope. The last Imp I got was R2 but both the neck and the pocket were about 1mm wider at the heel then usual, an R5 would fit there as well.

My only R5 clocks in at 55.55 mm while my R2s all are 56.55 mm at the heel shrug .
