i dont recommend sanding the neck or the neck pocket because you may run in to issues with the action closer to the nut and it isn't easy getting the pocket or neck level again without having the right tools.
Well, Just as a guess,I probably removed 1/32nd of material from teh surface to get down to bare wood,which left the trem cavity Not AS recessed as it once were, which left the trem appearing to sit too high overall. Its an ugly thing. I like streamlined, low profile etc & it just doesnt look good. BUT- During the time I posted & now I went & removed the neck & the tiny thin shim that was under the neck originally from teh factory (that I placed back under there upon finsihing clearcoat etc) I moved it to the Front of the pocket,rather than the back (towards 12th fret direction) which as slight as it was & as thin as the shim was, it made a difference. It counter angled the neck just enough where it still has ever so slight back angle, yet allowed me to turn the trem anchors in 2 full turns on the high side & one full turn on the low side. Now even though it doesnt recess INTO teh cavity .....it sits much much closer to the body & is level. ..which if I remember right, a lotta the old Flyd guitars werent very reccessed back in the day., I think.
