I was wondering, may a guitars neck be sanded flatter safley??? I am looking into a neck through 7 string that has all the features that I want that no other guitar can seem to provide. My only fear is that the neck maybe abit thicker than I might like. Is there any thing that can be "SAFELEY" done about this?????? Keep in mind that it has a floyd rose and I intend on doing some serious whammy action.

How much are you going to sand off? I'd say if it has a good truss rod and you could probably take off an 1/8 or 3/16s of an inch before you'd have a problem, maybe even more.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
You'd have to figure out how deep the truss rod channel is, and then I'd say the absolute thinnest you can sand it down is 1/8th of an inch until you hit that channel. Preferably ou should leave 1/4 inch though, as 1/8th of an inch really isnt much.

Seven string necks might be a little wider, but its not that bad.
