Hey Posted May 7, 2008 Report Share Posted May 7, 2008 It seems like everyone recommends cutting the slots in a fretboard while the board is still loose, then gluing it to the neck. Why not just glue it to the neck and then cut the slots? I can think of a few advantages of doing it that way -- for example, the slots could easily be cut perpendicular to the path of the strings, and then that would be that. Whereas the other way, you have to make sure you carefully align the fretboard when you glue it on, and fix it so it doesn't slip, to keep the existing slots oriented as well as they were when they were cut. And off the top of my head I can't think of any disadvantages. But I'm thinking there must be some, or else people would already do it that way. So, what am I overlooking?
