Solid hard maple .040 ±.003 (1mm ±.08mm) thick neck shim for Jazz Bass bodies whose neck pocket is 3-7/8″ long x 2.5″ wide at the heel and a bolt pattern of 1.5″ x 2″. These shims are cut on a CNC to insure they fit the neck pocket and the bolt holes align properly. Using this shim will allow you to use an OEM neck on Fender bodies that have this deeper neck pocket. The shims are not tapered.
These neck shims are also good for raising or adjusting the tilt in a neck that is too low or has a bad angle in relation to the bridge.
So, if you have a neck you like but it won’t fit a Fender Jazz bass body without cutting the pick guard off or a body where the neck angle is wrong, here is your solution. These neck shims provide perfect wood to wood coupling for tone transfer exactly as if the neck was .790 thick from the neck to the body. Made in the USA in our shop, not in a China labor pool!
