My Gear:
Epiphone Classic Les Paul
Ibanez JS1000 w/ Seymour Duncan Jazz and Pearly Gates

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe
Boss GT-8

sanding will take some time, I'm assuming it's maple, so it's gonna be pretty tough to work... but if you knew somehow how deep the truss channel was, you could use a spokeshave and rasps if you wanted.

Yeah you definatly have to find out exactly how deep the truss rod is before doing anything,

But thinning it is fine, dont go overboard you dont want the neck to bow beyond the control of the trussrod, and you will have to re finish it.
