Re: Neck help?
I've done this-
You need to route or chisel wood out for the fretboard.
Just lay the fretboard over the body and draw lines on each side of the fretboard so you know what to remove from the body. Then after that is done, hold the neck in the body face down.
Draw a pencil line following the edge of the body on the neck.
Then when you take the neck off you can see where to stop removing wood from the neck heal.
Use a rough file to shave down the heal of the neck until you get 95% of the way, then use sand paper to finish it up.
