Is it safe to my guitar to make the neck slightly thinner?
If so, how would I go about doing it?
Sand it myself or is it best left to a pro?

this try is just an experiment on my cheap guitar($90), just to see if its works before I try and mod my good one

What a terrible idea. your going to completely ruin the contuor of the back of your neck.
#11
i did it on the guitar i built, and it turned out fine.

Well as long as you don't do anything to drastic you should be fine...

You might have to adjust the truss rod to counteract the less wood though.

The contour at the back of the neck took a bit of fixing though if anyone else tries it, make sure you sand it evenly

How is it?

did you get like a strat copy? how's the neck feel now? and how much did you take off.

Oh, btw, go the the GB&C in the future.

It's just a Washburn strat copy I picked up at a pawn shop, and I took off about 3 or 4 mm with sand paper, not much but it makes a difference. I used finegrain sandpaper it feels smooth like when I bought it. I just had to brush some sawdust off it when I was done.

you shouldnt leave the maple all bare like that, you need to apply a thin layer of tung oil or something

People shave their necks all the time. Not that big of a deal.

That being said I hope you don't **** up the contour
