NoQuattro Posted June 23, 2010 Report Share Posted June 23, 2010 I would assume that, when doing a set-neck, you would like to have the tenon extend into the body a reasonable distance, probably at least 4 or 5 inches. The reason I ask is because my pre-made neck is designed to be a bolt in, and if I glue the neck into the neck pocket I fear it might not be strong enough. This is a standard sized Strat neck pocket we're talking about. On the other side of the token, I've thought that if the neck were properly glued it, it would be as strong if not stronger than 4 screws/bolts. I would like to have a sculpted heel, so the body of the guitar would definitely be less meaty in the heel area. The most important thing to be seems to be that the neck will fit tightly into the pocket before gluing to ensure that the wood is making good contact in there and the glue has a great chance of getting into the pores and setting up really nice. Solid maple body and neck. Thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
