scallop a nate perle neck


So, I am finally working on my project jem that's been set aside for too long. Anyone suggest any tips for scalloping the last 4 frets? I've never done this and don't want to ruin a 400 dollar guitar neck.


Thanks in advance,

Brett

use a 1\4 inch round file and start center and be careful.
too deep and you will hit the side marhers and go through inlay.

In reality it doesn't take all that much, maybe a few millimeters. I learned this the hard way scalloping the neck on my Squier i.e. no more fret markers.

Oh god, i don't know if I should or not... Im nervous and I don't want to wreck the neck. Haha I also don't want to spend a few hundred getting a luthier to do it.

Can't beat practising on another neck! I bought the cheapest guitar I could find last month as a kinda "learning tool" and am finding out allsorts by trial and error lol. Made a start on the high fret scallops and realised I don't have the right size file for that, so mental note made and shopping list updated!

I'd say don't bother if you're not confident. Practise makes perfect!

Re: scallop a nate perle neck


Invisible kids got a good point. I wanted to scallop my jem70v neck but have been worried about messing up the inlay. It would be damn cheap to just get a broken squier off Craigslist and give it a go first. I think I'll do that
