Quick Question About Lp Neck Pocket

Recommended Posts

Where did you read that? If you are using a mortise/tenon style joint then yes, the pocket is technically thinner than the overall profile of the playing surface (fingerboard). Search for Setch's Les Paul build to see what im talking about. You dont have to go this route though, you could just do a full width pocket and not do anything widthwise to the neck. You will have to conider how much gluing surface you are going to have doing it this way though, especially on the treble side. Go to mykaguitars.com and look at any of his "in progress" galleries to see this type of neck joint.
