dovetail on bolt on

Recommended Posts

The guitar of my dreams exists - on paper......

In the design phase of my guitar - a stratotype and have hit a small snag - or perhaps a solution.

The neck joint - I dont want it to be a big bulky thing but I am not panicky about it. But anyway the area I have drawn out is a tad smaller than the typical fender neck joint. Now to increase contact area I have invisioned initally not routing the joint flat, but leaving a central spine, say 10mm or so both high and wide running north/south down the pocket, with a corresponding slot on the neck - sort of a finger-joint type of thing

Then I thought - a slight dovetail in profile will increase this moreso.

Is this more trouble than it's worth or a good idea????
