    Hey I did a pretty amatuer defret job on my EDB600 this summer. I wound up putting a pretty substantial shim in the neck (1/16") to get the action at reasonable level, but its playing reasonably well now with only a few dead spots at the around the 22nd fret line. Anyway I think the next adjustment I'll do is to file down the nut slots, just wondering how much space you guys like to have between the strings and the fingerboard, and what tools you use for this job, I'm thinking I'll just pick up some of those small round files and eyeball it (like I've done the rest of the project)
