So here’s the story. I ordered one of those cheap Chinese necks from eBay. It’s actually surprisingly good quality. It’s 22 frets and I am installing it into a vintage style strat body. I checked the scale length and it is dead on. The issue is that the neck, specifically the butt end, it’s about a quarter of an inch too long (the part that is under where the 22nd fret hangs over). This completely changes the scale length and throws off the possibility for intonating incorrectly. There is not enough throw on the intonation adjustment screws to make up the difference. I run out of screw, and the saddles are sitting almost on top of the bridge installation screws, and that is still not enough room. So, my question is what is the best method for shaving off about a quarter of an inch on that butt end? I do not have a router, or a router table, but this might be the opportunity for me to finally end up getting one! So, if that’s the answer, I’d appreciate some recommendations on a router, and I’m not opposed to a smaller one because I will only be using it for guitar work. Also, if anybody has any recommendations how to properly set up the neck so that it doesn’t move so that I can work on it, I would appreciate those suggestions as well. Thanks guys!
