I've reprofiled 2 necks, 1 tele 1 strat, both wanted my gibson vintage carve profile and made a massive difference to playability, can't speak for tone and both loved them Even 3 tele necks that went to Germany had that profile, it's my favourite anyway, it's off a 58 dc basket case I've got to restore. When I get it back I will post a picture of the action to let you guys have a look. Been there, done that, but never to a good guitar. So you've created two or three repairs all on your own. DO NOT shave the neck on your paul. I also think that getting a new neck would be the better, faster, safer and most likely cheaper option. Is it possible without screwing the guitar up?
I tend to think it's easier to go buy the guitar you want instead of trying to force a guitar to become the one you want.
Shaving the neck on a Gibson Les Paul?
It took him all of 5 minutes. You will seriously devalue it. Much better option IMG: FindthetoneMar 31, Still, I'm curious to see the action metrics I asked him before earlier, so we can really "see" what he has, and discuss. With the sanding be prepared to do some quality thorough job, buying the right sandpaper, mesauring, resanding etc. I'll also get the complete story on these neck "issues".
