hehehe... i like it!!!
i guess you could find dead spots on all types of necks... if you would like to call them, they just appear some times more sometimes less pronounced or sometimes not at all... and of-course on different spots of the neck... i am just reminding that anything can work OK not dependent on the method but of the skill and materials you use or better... choose!!!
if you do things one by one, like each unique, results are unpredictable in the first place... so it may seem
but even when you see big series production that are made from the same materials the same measurements, craftsmanship... all that and still you get only 50% or less good pieces out...
so chances are that if you do each one unique you're more likely to get it right?!
