Hello! I could not find any other discussions on this topic, so here is my first post:
A while ago, I did a neck reset on one of my own guitars, and it turned out I might have overset the neck angle just slightly. By my standards, the action is currently comfortably low with medium gauge strings. Now I intend to sell the guitar, and for all I know, the next owner might prefer a higher action. The problem is that I don't think the bridge can handle a higher saddle. The bridge is original and has not been shaven. The truss rod is non-adjustable. I did the gluing with regular white glue.
Is there a way of relieving the neck joint just a tiny bit? Anything at all would be better than nothing. I was thinking about using weights to increase the strain on the neck joint, and then leaving it under tension for a couple of weeks or something... Perhaps even carefully heating the neck joint area while under pressure. Would this help at all? Is it risky business? I would like to avoid having to re-reset the neck or installing an oversized bridge. What would you people have done?
