    Hey I think I need to shim the neck on my Ibanez. I recently removed the frets, and now the action is too high and the bridge saddles are as low as they go. What material do you guys recommend for this? The action needs to be much lower (1/4 inch maybe?)
     
  2. For my fretless, I used thin wooden business cards that I bought at Lee Valley tools. I think they're made of maple and are about 1/32 of an inch thick. I cut it to the shape of the neck pocket. One card was all I needed to do the trick.
