So this has been on the back burner because of this: I'm ready to start sanding on all of these including the Les Pine. I thought about removing the ebony fretboard but decided I'll just finish it up as is. The fretboard issue is that the upper fret base notes will have a higher action than the treble side. The board was warped so I flattened it out which changed the shape of the arch of the fretboard at the upper frets. A conversation started in another thread so I figured I'd best talk in my own instead of hijacking another.
