This is the first guitar I made, I love it, and it is almost perfect for one thing. The strings are a little offset from the fretboard. The high E is only about 1mm away from the edge, and it has been bothering me so I must fix it now. Thankfully there is room to move the neck because of that tiny piece of wood covering the neck pocket. Should I just hand saw that little piece off so it comes off cleanly, plug the neck pocket holes and redrill 1mm to the side? Or could I get away with just adding that 1mm to the holes? I also know what to do about finishing any newly exposed wood. Any other suggestions would be much appreciated.
This is the only downside I can think of about building your own guitars. If you mess up, you'll know about it, even if no one else can tell.
