Hi. I put together a mighty mite bass body and neck and it was a tight fit, nearly too tight and i sanded all the paint in the neck pocket and the sides of neck pocket. The neck fit, but to get low action I have to set my bridge saddles very low. I kinda think I should have left the paint in the pocket. With the paint, a person has a few millimeters of more heel heighth. Am I right? Should I put the paint back in????? What do most people prefer? i once had a 1980 fender with the paint in the pocket and it played fine. But this neck i got has very low frets and i think i shoulda left the paint in.
