Shimming a Bolt on neck

From Evernote:

Shimming a Bolt on neck

Here are some pics during setup on my #1. I never use a whammy bar anymore so with everything clamped down the bridge saddles naturally sit to high even with low action.The problem being that as time goes on the bridge saddle gromets strip because of the instability in being a tall fat saddle with 2 skinny gromet legs haha! This is the solution I shimmed the neck with a very thin(thinner than a bank card) laminated piece of paper I found laying around to add some proxy height to the action. See pictures for details and more importantly dont try this at home , Matt P.S I'll go into the finer details in the future!
