    Ok, I shimmed the neck with Aluminum sheet and now I'm very happy with the result.(exactly according to my calculations). I made a new bone nut too and strings are much aligned now.
    I learned very much here. Thanks TB.

    Glad you like it! I hope it gives you many years of joy. You did a good job, especially given how visible it is.

    A flat shin merely raises the height of the neck, a tapered shim changes the angle of the neck (and might also raise the height).
