I have a bulldog kit I built years ago that is my workhorse LP. After playing a few PRS guitars I really envy the less flat radius.
If I pull the frets and sand the fretboard, will I go through the inlays (standard LP inlay, not dots)? Will they sand easily as wood?

Any general advice? I'm in no hurry to do this, but it sure would make the guitar feel better for my taste and playing style.

You will be redoing a lot of the most complex neck building operations, but with the neck already attached. The wider inlays like 17, 19 and 21 have a fair chance of being sanded through.....just depending on how deep they are routed.

I would look at other options myself - just the tools you have to buy to do a good job here could probably buy another kit with your choice of radius.
