Is this possible to contour the hell of a strat without ruining the guitar? I know it'll take all the finish off if I do it. But can it be done to a normal guitar? I have a full wood working shop, and my dad is a carpenter. He could do it if it's possible.

I just don't want to split the body or neck.

Yeah it'll take off the finish, and what do you mean by "normal guitar"?
You will not ruin it if you know what you are doing.

I don't know how to go about doing it, i would be interested in the answer as well!

you could a little bit, but i don't know how much or how much of a difference it would make on a bolt on.

I played an Ameri-Deluxe with it, and with EASE I could reach all 22. I have trouble getting the 21 and 22 on mine right now.

Tons of bolt on guitars do contorted heels.

Ibanez guitars, Washburns etc...

It's so you don't have that huge block in the way like on Fender guitars.

Many places do it just remember to shorten the neck screws so they dont go thru the fret board. other than that shouldnt be a problem.
