Bolt On Heel Size?

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I am about to start my first build and I can't seem to find any information on how much heel is necessary on a bolt on neck for stability. I understand that more is better than less, but bhow little can I get away with? It will be a 24fret 7 string build with a fairly extreme lower bout cut (I am borrowing rather heavily from an Oni design). The body joins the neck at around the 19th fret on the top bout and the 22nd fret at the lower bout. I currently have the round of the heel extending out to the 18th fret.

Does this seem like enough for a solid join?

I don't have a similar bolt on in my possession to compare it to - I have a set neck ibanez artcore and a heel-less Yamaha Pacifica 1221.
