Quasi-dovetail Tenons ...


Recommended Posts

It seems that alot of glue in necks use square-ish tenons. Do you think it's be a good idea to have the tenon follow the taper of the fretboard, so that it'd be shaped like a large parallelogram sort of like a large dovetail? It seems to me anyway that this could be stronger than a regular tenon.

Most of the tenons that I have seen, except from Gibson are like you suggest. Haven't you seen Perry's threads of his guitars, including some bolt ons that he hold by the neck without bolting them and they stay in. Look at Mykas neck jig thread to see it clearly.

Thanks for the info! I'm going to look for some of those threads. :D
