Im in the process of building a Warmoth Tele. I just received the neck in the mail today and Im thinking the contour I ordered is a little too big for me.
I ordered the Boatneck option because that, along with the "Fatback" and "Standard thin", are the only options that don't cost extra and I prefer fatter necks to thinner ones. The Boat is just a bit too big though, like I said.
How much can I safely shave off the skunk stripe without compromising the stability of the neck? I don't want to take off a lot, maybe 3mm. Just enough to round it off more so it doesnt have such a big "peak". I will have to sand directly on the skunk stripe.
Also, is there any special tools I could use and what sandpaper grit should I use for this? I was thinking like 220. Thanks.
