Right so m going to sand down my strat today. But ive never dealt with a kneck befor, should i just unscrew it or is there a set way to do it? i guess what i mean is, by taking it off will it bugger up the truss rod settings and screw the kneck up?? cheers tobz

I'm pretty sure it won't do anything bad, but don't leave it off for too long.

I left mine off for 4-5 days about a fortnight and I had absolutely no problems.

I snipped mine, then used strip connectors to join them again when the time came.

You can solder them, but if you use strip connectors it's easier to take off again.

You'd probably be better to put the neck on as soon as, but like i said, several days won't do any harm at all.

It's the lack of tension that can be a problem, so put the strings back on as well.

What's the advantage of desoldering them?

You can just easily solder them back together, without ruining the wires / having to add extra parts.

When I was refinishing my whole guitar. I took the neck off for about 2 weeks. It was fine, no ajustments needed. Just make sure its in a room that doesn't really change temp. or humidity.

If by shielding, you mean grounding, yes, I think so.
