    Installed on my partscaster tele, a Musikraft rosewood on a straight maple base. Due to aging and arthritis, I find this neck now uncomfortable to play. Just don’t have the hand strength. I’ve placed lighter gauge strings on this instrument. This did help. What I would like is to have a luthier re-cut this fat neck into a boat profile, .92”at 1st thru 12th fret.)
    Anyone had a re-profile cut on a neck?
    Any good, bad or ugly on this idea. Any suggestions on a neck luthier to accomplish this task?
