How much support does a bolt on neck need on either side? Im building a Les Paul Jr. Double cutaway and my neck is bolt on. I dont want to change the shape of the guitar or have the neck go farther into the body unless its absolutely necessary so im just wondering if a bolt on can have next to no support on either side or if say half an inch of the neck has to be in a pocket
This is a bolt on and has next to nothing for support on the sides, seems to be pretty solid. It may not be as low cut on both sides as yours but it gives you an idea of how low you can go.

Sorry for huge pic.
