I know that there are plenty other discussions in our forum here to help with this procedure but i have a few more questions.
1. are the shims at between the top of the neck bar and bottom of resonator cavity supposed to be glued back into place? the reason i ask is because upon opening this one i found they were and i am having huge amounts of trouble getting the neck out let alone getting it to move at all despite removing all screws (including fingerboard screws)
2. it also seems that there has been a previous attempt at a reset and that not only at the heel where we would like to remove mass but also very close to the fingerboard and it seems like the scale length is slightly off. I assume a shim would be acceptable if needed.
Just looking for some insightful feedback. Any response will be greatly appreciated.
