fret board
Jan 26th, 2011 at 8:07am
 
Hi just bought a Hama Lima kit. Going to make a concert. The fret board is already slotted. It looks a little thick 7/32 or 5.57 Do I need to thin it out or is it good like it is?
Thanks
Dan

All your material is good to go as is, but please feel free to thin it down if you want.  The thickness of the neck is player preference. 

The thickness of the fretboard should relate to the thickness of the bridge being about 1/16" thinner than the bridge.  This will leave you in a good place for your string setup.
