Blackdog Posted January 26, 2009 Report Share Posted January 26, 2009 Hello people, I finally took the decision of reworking my first build. It was never coming out of the case because the fret job, the radiusing and the straightness of the fretboard were less than great. The neck itself was also a bit too much on the beefy side. Now I've gotten much better with the necks and the fretting, so I have already reshaped the back of the neck, removed the old frets and straightened re-radiused the fretboard. But, in terms of rework, I could also use a little more neck angle with the Pigtail wraparound bridge I'm using now. I can always route a shallow recess for the bridge and be done with it. But I was thinking if removing the neck would be so difficult or risky. It would definitely make my life easier for the re-fretting too. So how do you remove a glued neck ?? I know I have to use heat, but how exactly. In case it matters this is an essentially unfinished maple neck with maple fretboard into a one piece mahogany body. Thanks in advance for the suggestions and help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
