Hi guys,

Im currently building a frankenstrat and am looking to install the Floyd Rose nut.A friend gave me a maple neck that has already had an attempt to fit one with disastorous consequences.basically the nut for the truss rod is now visible where the previous attempt had been made to fit the nut.It is also uneven,and in my opinion needs refilling/building up again and sanded/routed down correctly.

My question is this-is there anyway of using some sort of wood filler/wood packing to bring the nut area back to fretboard height allowing me to re-machine it?

or should i just get another neck?which i cant really budget for??


The right way to do this would be to fit and glue a new piece of wood (NOT wood putty or something like that) into the area and then rout it correctly from there.
