Shim the neck. Put a piece of wood under the heel like you say at the end.


EDIT: It's a half an inch where? 12th fret? I don't think you can shim that out. You may have screwed up somewhere.

Roll with it. No one but you will probably ever know it's there. It gives the guitar character, and you will always know if it's your's or not.

ESP Can't (won't) sell the explorer shape in the US, even on a custom anymore. I believe Mr. Hetfield may be an exception, but his customs are probably ghost built by a luthier these days.
