TomN Posted January 24, 2007 Report Share Posted January 24, 2007 I really like having 22 Fret Necks and I have been having a hard time finding one in the profile I like. I found a great neck with an Ebony Fretboard and a compound radius fretboard that feels great on the fret board. Nice Frets, Nice everything except it's as thick as a Louisville Slugger. Ala an older Jeff Beck signature neck. I would like to remove some wood off the back of the neck to thin it out. Nothing radical, not as far as an Ibanez or anything like that. But a nice comfortable feel. A Small amount should make a pretty big difference. So I just need to know if this is commonly done or just not recommended. Although I will probably try it anyway. I have a 62' reissue neck that I love. That's my target profile. So what would be the best way to evenly remove the excess wood (being careful of the truss rod of course, I don't plan to go that far). Should I sand it, or use some kind of wood plane? I will also need help spraying it once it I get to that. But I will make that a seperate topic if I can't find any threads on it already. Thanks in advance for your help.
