Can I Do This?

Recommended Posts

Don’t know your level of wood working skills, but I would suggest this:

Get a thru body neck from Carver or something similar.

Plan down the thickness of the neck, leaving something like 1” excluding the fret board

Cut the neck to length, leaving enough to have something to glue into the body

Make a jig for a neck pocket and practise the routing on scrap

Cut a neck pocket that let the neck sit a bit proud of the body’s face (making away with the need for a neck angle if using a t-o-m bridge)

Screw the neck in place

This is only the outline of the job. I have skipped a lot of details, but I cannot se any reasons it wouldn’t work. For a much neater job, make if with a neck angle
