I'm thinking of mucking about with my old SG special.
I want to sand the neck down a bit, not too much, just to give it some more comfort and thinness. And sanding away the body paint. How far should I go on the neck. Not too far. I asked on other forums (a less frequented aussie forum) and was told not to do it because the neck wood isnt strong.

which makes sense, but i'd still like to make it a bit nicer on the neck. Anyone have experience doing this with tips??


The Gear I Use Most:
Gibson guitars, Les Paul, ES-335, SG and more.
Dunlop Crybaby | Dunlop Volume | Boss TU-2 | Ibanez TS-9 | Maxon AD-999
Planet Waves Custom Leads
Marshall JCM900 (model: 4100 + 4101)

It's a maple neck so it should stand to a little bit of shaving.
You've just gotta make sure you don't hit it to far down and come into contact with the truss canal.
You could probably shape it to a more of a wider U shape or a dramatic change into a V.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

I was thinking a bit of a wide U.

The truss rods about what 1/4 inch in or so , won't be taking off that much for sure.
