j. pierce Posted April 8, 2006 Report Share Posted April 8, 2006 No luck searching, so just a quick question - Are there any structural issues around making a set neck where the "set" part is around (probably just under) an inch thick? It seems like even my SG has a thicker piece set into the body than that. I'll probably do the same thing I did with my last guitar, which was a very long tenon, (almost to the bridge on my last one) and a 1/4" cap glued on top of that. Of course, the cap, as well as the neck angle, means that the thickness of this set part of the neck will get rather thin. Asthetically, if the heel carve works out the way I want, it shouldn't be an issue, but should I be concerned about this structurally? I'd imagine I should be fine if my glue joints are good, right? I mean, there would never be a piece of unnattached wood anywhere in the string path that's thinner than the neck, so I should be fine? I get wondering about wierd things sometimes.
