• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

The dimension from the surface of the fretboard to the centre of the back of the neck is less than on a neck that is rounded, as you say.

Almost two millimetres. On this particular guitar it was instantly very noticeable.

The one-piece necks on the Elites I owned were all much more round.

I use UPS in the states and they are very reliable .
UPS isn't great here but I've used it and only once did the item not get through. Thanks for the tip.

I guess I was wondering about an actual retailer. Just one of the biggies? Amazon UK say they have CTS 500k long-shafts. And I see StewMac are willing to use DHL!

Okay, I'm good. I apologise for not doing my own research. Thanks very much for the help.

If you are looking to buy a good wiring harness with 500K pots ,ThroBak is who I swear buy for Pickups (101 Plus with A5 magnets ) They have built me numerous harness and pickups and I love them . www.throbak.com . I have a wiring harness and pickups that just shipped out yesterday .

Hmmm ... I like the shielding on the Heritage 80 controls. And if I install 500k pots, I'll re-install the original Tim Shaws plus the original tailpiece and original bridge. And there's some wear left in the original frets.

So, it'd be a-a-a-almost back to original -- I replaced the original mounting rings from the get-go 'cause they were crappy. As I say, it's never going to be a collector's item.

I think a wiring harness is not the direction I'm going in, though I know ThroBak to be top shelf. Thanks for the tip. By the way, I assume I want audio-taper and long split shaft for twenty-four splines ... just "long", that's all I have to specify?
