I have reached the point where I want to build my own neck thru bass. Luckily, my favorite bass manufacturer is Kiesel/Carvin and they sell pre-made necks which I intend on using for a 5 string build. I would like to carve the neck heel so that I have full access the every fret and I would like to know if, you think personally or from experience, carving that much wood off of the neck would cause any problems. Think Skjold or Zon Hyper bass kind of cut. Thanks!
