Ok looks nice
I like to be 3/32 above but you should be fine.

Once strung up you want to be about 1/2 in off the top in front of the bridge the unknown is how much the top will rise. You are safe and the more you do this , the better you will get.

John

Is that 3/32 over the bridge with the frets installed, or not?

After starting over five times, the neck is set, and tighter than a tick on a hound dog. I can seat that neck with only my hands ( unfinished raw wood)and it's rock solid, perfectly aligned and takes a rubber mallet to get it loose. Wondering how the finish is going to affect it and how much monkeying around will be required after Nitro finish is applied? I'm now over a year into this first build : )

The finish is very thin. You won't have a problem.
