Will a gibson neck fit on an epiphone body? jw not planning on doing this, just curious
#3
yes, but the necks are the same. the difference nowadays is the headstock and non-wood components, otherwise they're identical
#4
i dont really see why any one would want to other than to scam a buck or two...the epi necks are plenty comfy.

I am actually thinking of doing this because the headstock broke off of my Dot Studio, although i have no idea how to get the old neck off.

I think you should use a flaming torch. Go unglue the neck off the body using the flaming torch, if the wood melts or catches on fire, then let it catch on fire until it comes off.

Then get the other neck, and paste it on there with glue.

lol seriously, I don't know. I'm just being creative. haha

Im pretty sure the heel of gibson and epis are different. Getting a glued set neck apart isnt that difficult. Getting the epoxy apart epi uses gets really destructive. A gibson neck will cost more than a new epi dot.
#8
I wouldn't buy a gibson neck, i would get one from warmoth or ebay.
I tried using a hair dryer to melt the glue off the neck.....it didnt work, then i tried to break it in half but then i relized there was this thing called a "truss rod"

Why would you want to? Gibsons are real **** right now, you get better value with Epiphones.

Gibsons are one solid piece of wood, you'd be snapping it in half if you took off the neck

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

and ts: the necks MIGHT fit, but its robably beyond your skill to get a glued neck off witout breaking it

So,

Not to mention that the body is usually at least 3 pieces of wood.

I own a gibson les paul custom, so get your face palm **** outta here, and who the hell just rips the neck off those

Obv you couldn't craft an entire guitar out of one piece of wood, but they are by no means bolted on, they're not really designed to be taken apart and the sustain on the guitar may never be the same again

what's your point, I was just making sure we were on the same page because of what I said earlier. I'm holding one right now, I don't need anyone to tell me there's no bolts in it. Some of you sound like losers by instead of just saying that something isn't true you make some stupid sarcastic remark to make yourself look smart

So don't get all bent out of shape because of something dumb you wrote. It may not have not been what you meant, but it's what's there. No one has said that a Gibson or Epiphone is a bolt on. People were ing you because you made it sound as if you thought an entire LP was carved out of a single chunk of wood.

EDIT: On topic though... said neck transplant, if possible, would be prohibitively expense and utterly pointless.

wait so it's not carved out of one piece of wood?

Never. If you're lucky, your guitar consists of two pieces (one for the neck and one for the body), but more commonly it's three or if you're unlucky three pieces of wood (one for the neck and the rest for the body).

To build an entire guitar out of one piece of wood would be incredibly expensive and wasteful.
#26
sorry I was just kidding, everyone made it pretty clear the neck is glued on. Imagine what that block of wood would look like if you cut an entire guitar out of it? edit: Actually I think weisenborn guitars are made like that, but the necks are hollow
