My fretboard is lifted near the 1st fret. Tips on repair?
Some of you may notice that this is my second thread. My first addressed fret buzz and that I thought I'd either need a fret dress or to make my locking nut higher. Since I diagnosed the problem wrong, I figured I'd just make a new thread. I hope that's cool.
Anyways, I have an Ibanez RG560 that I love, but fret buzz has kept me from enjoying it as much. Today I unscrewed the locking nut and found two thin metal shims placed under it. It took me a while, but I eventually noticed that my rosewood fretboard is slightly lifted and that the shims have dug between it and the maple. It is lifted for about the first inch.
I'm guessing a wood gluing project is now in order and am asking for some tips. I figure I'll place a wood block on the fretboard and a clamp over that, but am not sure how to protect the rounded backside of the neck. Anybody have any tips or recommendations to offer? Thanks!
