What are the dimensions of a Les Paul neck pocket? Answered

I am building a guitar and I need to know what the dimensions for the neck pocket should be. I will be using a Les Paul style neck from Warmoth, 24 3/4" scale. While your at it, could you tell me the dimensions for an EDS-1275 neck pocket?


My epiphone les paul special edition 2 is 2 9/32" wide x 3 1/8" x 47/64" deep but i measure really accurately so to most people it is probably a 2 1/4" wide pocket best bet would to email warmoth and ask them the dimentions they usually give you a pretty nice answer hope this helps, and good luck building your guitar, and as far a the EDS-1275 i cant help you there

To those who recommend google, I doesn't give me what I am looking for. I can't find key words that find what I want. Thanks for the effort though.

Reread the info on the Warmoth link below:
Warmoth has held to the Fender dimensions in all our offerings (exceptions noted).

So all their necks fit the same size pocket; the dimension are given. Any exceptions are noted at the bottom.

There isn't a standard for bolt-on LP necks, because the Gibson offerings aren't the bolt-on type. LP clones with bolt-on necks use their own standards...

Thanks for the link, sorry I didn't see it when you first posted it. I just needed to know what depth to cut the neck pocket. Do you know any stores that sell a twelve string version of that same neck?

Nope, sorry. You might find a similar neck on ebay, though.

I dont see you with any answers honestly, anyone who has an answers most likely used google themselves so its a much better answer than something totally irrelevant

You'd have been better off not posting, because saying "google it..." isn't solving his problem, it's just pointing him to somewhere he's probably already looked. Do you really think saying "Google it..." is that clever? You must be the first person to think of it!

Im sorry did i send you a pm asking if it was clever? i tend to do that sometimes... Im pretty sure telling me that my comment doesnt help doesn't help him/her either

Well, this argument probably wouldn't have happened had you not posted a useless, ignorance-based comment that, literally, anybody could have posted.

You're not being clever, you're not helping, you're just wasting time and / or "BRINGUNG UP MAI POSTE COUNT!!111!A;LFKJ".

He asked a question, and it didn't deal with "give me arbitrary, useless answers", it dealt with "can you help me find out so and so...".

I will not be replying.

I wasn't offering advice to him, but rather to you.

Whatever you do, you should wait until you actually have the neck before you do any cutting. As in all woodworking projects, measure three or four times, and hopefully cut once.

Apparently all Warmoth necks have the heel size.

I have a Gibson LP, but it's a set neck, not a blot-on, which I believe is the same all standard LPs.

Blot-on, bolt-on... You know.
