plot a line of measurements like you did on the BA neck and I'll help you indicating where the neck needs work
Thanks Juan for your offer to help. I would prefer a chart of measurements of a #01 neck. As a Buescher expert, I am sure that you have kept such detailed records over the years.

I have one 01 aristo neck, one * and one 1 true tone necks at this time at the shop. I can measure and all, however, I feel like this warning should be posted: you're not likely to have success working "backwards". As Grumps mentioned, his 01 neck played fine with his horn but played not so nice on another horn of about the same era. More often than you'd think, there's more to tuning a neck for a certain horn than the other way around

Why don't you send me the measures on the horn that you have issues with and a detailed description of the intonation quirks (MPC make, model, tip opening, all data that you can include can help me replicate your test condition and be more accurate on my recommendations) plus you mentioned you tested it with the BA neck, please compare that one with the buescher neck.
Thanks, but no thanks. If you don't have the measurements indicating the taper of the #01 neck then why don't you just say so instead of beating around the bush.
