38mm thickness, neck pocket 15.88mm pocket depth, supporting thickness by default is 22.12mm.
Though if you need deeper/shallower route or an angled pocket to compensate for different bridge height do so.

Neck seems right... thank god. so it is just a case of running the body through a ?planer? don't really know the english word for the machine. Rebevel the edges and repaint. Probably will stay like it is until it gets warm enough to sand wood and spray nitro outside... Very Happy

Thicknesser/Planner machine, your local joinery shop will have one. They should probably be able to bevel the edges for you on a router table if you have the right bit, think stewmack etc stock them.
