Re: Becoming a Floyd/Edge Pro Master!
OK, I'm very tired, apologies for my entry, was slightly backwards. Rugby game today... got hit quite hard in the head, think it's affectng my brain slightly...
What i meant is that basically if you do file the knife edges, or get the edge back on them, it's essentially like sharpenning a knife with a steel...If you do it too thin, yes you can blunt it, but by doing so you shorten the blade, (particularly evident in filleting knives, which are extremely thin for filleting fish) and if you make this mistake more than once (easily done if you're a beginner) you can mess the intonation up surely, because the distance from bridge to 12th fret is being decreased, and thus uneven from the distance from nut to 12th...
I'm not saying that you'd ever do that Rich, or that it's common, but it is possible.
I got there in the end i think (hope)
