    I just had my neck blank for my fretless glued up. It's maple with two walnut laminates. The laminates are each 1/4" wide and the center piece of maple is 3/4". Do you think the laminates are too far apart to look good all the way down the back of the neck? And if I were to want to take a quarter inch out of the middle and glue it back up, would it be a hard process?
    Edit: it's a 5 string

    Strictly a matter of personal preference. It wouldn't be "hard" to gut 1/4" from the middle, but it'd be harder than not doing it.
