boundsteelblues Posted October 12, 2010 Report Share Posted October 12, 2010 I apologize for a naïve question, but I see how a false move at this stage is going to mean problems later on. I sanded my preslotted and radiused fretboard and thought I had it very flat per my straight edge. Apparently, I need stronger readers because I’ve noticed now that the front half of the first fret dips down (to the my best estimate) 1/64th of an inch. Let’s say you can see some light. Real hard to measure without three hands. I am 6.10 mm at the center of the fretboard at the end of the guitar end and 5.9 mm at the nut end. From something I read, I don’t think I want to take it down any thinner. Thinking I was done, I sanded the fretboard up to mirror shine. Is this slight dip in the first half of the first fret a problem or am I making too much out of it? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
