I would make sure you leave at least a couple of millimetres of wood between the end of the screw and the start of the fretboard. That should be a good guide to how thin your neck can be if you know how thick your body is going to be at that point.

I'm sure you can find some cross-sectional drawings online.

What I meant was where the bolts go thru the body how thin can i make that?

Yes sorry. I edited my original post. That will teach me for not reading the OP properly

Well I sorta would like to look similar to a set neck but because I cannot afford a set neck but I had a bolt on lying around.
