I'm trying not to be rude or stroppy and it's not a bash on Dave. From what I can gather someone has asked him to do the work on a neck that they have bought (probably from ali express or even from someone reselling Chinese "quality" products as hand made or whatever) and Dave is trying his best to do as good a job as possible, and I am very happy to help him as much as possible to do as good a job as possible. This kind off situation is always a bit of a grey area. I've been making and repairing guitars for a living since I was 18 and yes I did study guitar making for 3 years at the london college of furniture (commercial road London in the late 70's) I learnt the hard way by doing it myself including many cockups (including jig sawing through the kitchen table and spraying the net curtains fiesta red overspray which glowed impressively at sunset) We didn't have any internet and just a couple of books from the local library. maybe i'm just getting a bit grumpy in my old age. Anyway Dave let us know what works and what didn't in case anyone else has similar problems. And appologies to your friend/client/customer/bloke down the pub I meant no disrespect.
