I made a Les Paul a couple of years ago modelled on a 59 Reissue although I left the neck thicker by 2mm. I recently decided I wanted to bring it down to match but in the process I sanded the edges of the fretboard making them angled. If I squared the edges of the fretboard it would end up being about 3mm too narrow at the 5th fret and way too narrow at the Nut I have a couple of ideas on how to fix this but none of them are easy. Here are the ideas I came up with 1) Spray massive amounts of Nitro along the edge and shape it from there 2) Pull frets, square edges of Fretboard and add Binding. This would leave a step under binding which I would fill with Nitro 3) Same as 2 or 3 but use 2-pack Lacquer to fill with 4) Re-shape width and make narrower string spacing for people with smaller hands 5) Cut Neck off and replace 6) Sell as "unfinished project" and let it be someone else's problem Here is how the damage was done Anyone else been in this situation? Any suggestions appreciated Cheers, Doug
