that's called a scalloped neck... check it out on google

some players prefer scalopped necks, because you only touch the string, and not the fretboard... which some people find it easier to play fast (because there's no friction)....

you can do this yourself with a contour sanding block (if you have patience....a LOT of patience...) or with a dremel contour sanding tool (much faster). scalloped my mexiStrat this way and if you polish the fretboard past 800 grit sandpaper it looks completely factory finished.
PRACTICE on scrap wood first though, some people have screwed up their guitars this way, also triple tape all your frets so you don't mess them up and need a refret. Google instructions if you're unsure about it. pretty easy job and the results vs. paying $$ for the job are well worth it.

some people? I think A LOT of people screwed up their fretboard that way.

As it comes to fretboards let a pro do it... or if it's a real cheapass guitar, try, **** up, and buy a new one WITH scalopped (if it suits you)

Yeah, come to think of it, if you're "iffy" about doing things like this yourself, just pay the cash and buy a new guitar/guitar neck already scalloped. I prefer doing things myself, but I have experience. If you're new to luthier work, you're more likely to damage your guitar. Doesn't Warmoth.com offer scalloped necks? IMHO scalloped is a bit over-rated, it offers the advantage of easier bends, but the "speed" claims is really just YOU developing a lighter touch while playing.

Buy yourself a cheap neck to practice if you were going to do it on your expensive guitar.
