Fretboard Thickness?

Recommended Posts


I want to replace my fretboard and have found a donor, the scale is the same but the new fretboard is a bit thinner then the original. If I use it straight on my action would be higher then it is now. I dont want that so what can I do? Use higher fretwire? Is it possible to shim the fretboard by glueing a thin piece of some material between the neck and fretboard?

Any thoughts on this?

i guess, shim the fingerboard. the question is: why the heck do you want to replace the fingerboard? and if you did, why wouldn't you find one of the same thickness?

odd combo you got goin' on here.
