Just have to turn it into a guitar to see if I fixed that pesky 12th fret buzz.
Curious what you used for a leveling block and sand paper.
We're I to attempt this...
If be buying a new neck...
I used a long piece of wood about 3/4" wide by about 18" long with fairly rough sandpaper glued to it for the initial run. First I straightened out the bow using the truss rod, then I marked the top of each fret with a sharpie. Ran the block back and forth until all the sharpie was gone. Then I used 0000 steel wool 50 passes over each fret, then a sponge sanding block 800 grit for the final run. I may yet go to a higher grit, haven't decided. I have no use for it at the moment so I'm not in a hurry. It may end up on my MIM Strat.
I’m with @thomquietwolf .
I’d probably screw up my neck but I may try this on one of my guitars anyway.
@Lonn I’m not even sure if I am using the correct terminology . How did you go about crowning the frets ?
Hope ya got it! Ive used makeshift stuff with success myself. Really would like to buy a few decent tools for the job. Crowning files ,ect.
Looks good to me!
