Different radius necks and the Edge-Pro

I plan on putting a Wizard II neck on my lefty prestige that has the Edge-Pro trem.

My question is will the 400mm radius on the Wizard II neck have any negative effect on action considering the Edge-Pro is designed to be used with a 430mm neck?

Re: Different radius necks and the Edge-Pro

That's a pretty small difference really. But you can always adjust the bridge radius with saddle shims (under the saddles) to match the neck if you like.

Yes, saddle shims. Where's a good place to buy them? Or do people just fabricate their own?

Re: Different radius necks and the Edge-Pro

With such great information lost, what will we ever do?

I used to cut up Pepsi cans to make shims, now I have a fabricator make them in 4 thicknesses, 300 at a time. Very useful for correctly radiusing edge pro bridges.

Bye bye, take care and come back when you can't stay. I just love "I am gonna take my ball and go home." folks. Dude if you get riled up over something like that then you have a rude awaking in store when you enter the real world.

Give 'em the benefit of the doubt. I hear that PMS, menstrual cramps and elevated estrogen levels can wreak havoc on one's emotions at certain times of the month.

So I should buy stock in midol? If he had not became snotty I would have said I thought the tin foil was a good idea but I won't now
