So, I have been on this "I need to build a tele" kick of late and as in most cases of my OCD I now have a workbench full of parts and tools and Im all about building this guitar. I knew I wouldn't become a luthier over night so i went with a tele on the cheap. I spec'd out everything and started ordering. The body was the first arrival, a 3pc alder job off fleabay. It looked ok. Nothing to get worked up over, but for the money I figured it would be fine. While waiting for the parts to start flowing in I set out to roadhouse this body like a bad step child, let me just say fire was involved. I beat it, carved it, sanded, scraped, and sanded alot more. Too my surprise it turned out really cool. I spent about a week of after works just putzing in the garage working on it. By this time most the parts had shown up and the first thing I go for is the neck. I unpack it, take it to meet it's new life partner and GOOD GOD! The neck is rattling around in the pocket like hot dog in a hallway. The neck specs right at 2.1875".....the body on the other hand is not so much. Needless to say I have a lot of work in this body and it looks cool, but what can be done about a .125" gap in the pocket? Now I understand this is a huge oversight on my part for not checking this before starting, but I already understand that so let's move on to the what now type of remarks. Can this situation be helped by shimming the side of the neck?
