Hi all, just a quick question i hope any luthiers can help with.
I'm building a guitar body and have routed the neck pocket about 1mm too wide. The neck can slide in and out without touching the sides.
Now my question is, can I shim the walls of the pocket to make it snug, or is it best to start another body instead? I'd assume I can wedge some little shim in there and it should be ok, but is there more to it than that?
Shim it, if you're just building for yourself go with it and learn from it.
