  1. Hi everybody. I just signed up here to get some good advices, looks like I ended up at the right place. I have a Strat copy which is now more than 20 years old I guess, when I was a boy I swapped the guitar for a Skateboard. Since then I tuned her bit by bit. Now I am trying to level out the frets, and watched some videos on YouTube. My favorite one was this: I made a copy of an notched straightedge out of an aluminum bar and converted my spirit level into a fret leveler. I'm conscious that these are no perfect precision tools but for now I wont spend 100€ just on tools, It's more about learning for future projects. I took the neck off, got the nut out and marked all high spots, BUT I released the thrust rod completely and the neck is not getting completely straight. I has still a slight back curve, the straightedge marks like 2mm backward bending at the 21 fret. I waited for one day, releasing bit by bit the trust rod tension, but I fear after (maybe more) than 20 years the wood wont get straight again. What do you guys think is best to do now? I really like screwing around on my guitar, but I already miss playing her... I tried to add a picture but I dont really get how to add it to my post... ...bit by bit...
