I need to smooth out my fretless neck

    I have a fretless bass that has 2 fret line markers (very last frets) a little too high and when I move close enough to it, it "buzzes" out.
    I guess I could sand it down, but wasn’t sure if it was that simple.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It is that simple. In theory. IRL, you must be very careful, to sand right...

    Depends on how much you have to remove.
    But the final touch should not be rougher than 240 (now I will hide for all interested parties that will flame me for not saying "final sanding with 600, or 1000 :bag: )
