    Hi there :)

    If/when you're shimming a neck pocket, does it matter if the shim is angled or flat?

    I've seen some use angled shims and others use flat shims..

    Also, some shims cover the whole pocket and others don't, why?

    Thanks & Cheers! :)

    It should not matter if it's angled or flat. My personal preference is to cover the whole pocket to maximize contact area between the neck and body.
