I recently got a bass from someone that was put together from parts. When i took off the neck to shim it i noticed it was a mighty mite. Its a decent neck but the back of the neck isnt smooth like ive always played and its bugging me. How do you get the back of the neck to be smooth and silky? Plus there is alot of fret overhang in areas, how do you file the ends without messing up the neck? Sorry but these are things i have never had to deal with so i just dont know.
