Talking Broken Necks - pics and advice

Hi, I'm looking to get as much info on jem/wizard neck construction as possible. I'm trying to get going on some builds and am getting on OK with shaping but am worried about dimensions, truss rods etc.

At the moment I'm trying for a 27" scale wizard II like my RG6-CSD2/RG970XL and don't know if I need a longer truss rod than for a 25" scale. I'm wanting to do a jem style neck next! (once I'm hadier with a spokeshave!)

If anyone has details and pictures from broken necks, cross sections etc could they add them here please?

If anyone has any broken necks they could lend/sell please PM me too, most appreciated!
