Scale length measure question


New member
I received my shipment from Warmoth. (I took pictures and will get them up when I get back to town  :toothy10: )  I'm at a friends to do all the drilling for the pickguard and tuners.  I put the neck on making sure that it's touching the body.  I measured from the center of the bridge to the center of the nut as suggested and it measure about a 1/16" too above 25 1/2" (25 9/16").  Will this be ok?  Did I do something wrong?  Any suggestions?

I know this things are made on CNC machines.  It's not like it's just some guy randomly cutting them out so I realize the problem is most likely on my side.  hehe.

Thanks for any assistance!

How far from the front of the bridge did you measure from (perhaps from the saddle string break point?)
The measured length will always be a bit more than quoted scale length, as this extra bit is for intonation compensation.
