Hi everybody, I'm Italian thus you have to be patient when my english will commence to look for a glass of red wine :-P
I'm building a second, better fitted neck and resonator for my 5strings banjo, made from StewMac parts.
for this second neck I've bought a classic H&F England fretboard and peghead overlay, outstanding parts. After about an year of hesitation and thougths, I've started putting everything together. The result is quite nice but there's something that needs evaluation to decide if worth of a fix or not.
This is a pic of the overlay glued and shaped to the peghead www.fabiopollero.com/images/peghead.jpg
if you check the two twig-like inlays on top of the lower tuner holes have come to fall way too close to the edge. The neck I've used had a CNC shaped head and if compared to a 1934 Gibson appears to have deepest contour than the original. The inlays around the holes are well centered and even a hair or too lower than the correct center.
The question is: have I to consider this small issue and try a fix or just leave it this way. And in case of a fix, what's best?
