A recent acquisition has me working on an issue with the neck pocket. Some of the finish wasn't cleaned up when built and the low E corner is slightly in need of correction, and won't allow for a precision fit. I know it's only about a sixteenth of an inch or less, but it don't sit right with me. So, I wondered about cleaning the pocket with my router, and how to go about that. I though that the pickguard fit just fine around the heel of the neck, and set out to use it as a template. I made a spacer 3/8"th thick, aligned it & clamped it between the pickguard and the body. I set the bit depth … tomorrow I'll see just how well this works. Anyone ever do anything similar? Stop me if I'm wrong. Cheers, Barrie.
