Heya guys, I'm building an electric guitar for my ResMat GCSE.
I currently have a Westone 24-fret bolt on neck I'm using for the project, but I was thinking, is it possible to convert this neck into the central column for the body?
My idea is to join the end of the neck to a maple column using small metal boltsnd strong glue.
Any advice, instruction, links, etc are greatly appreciated

Thanks
ohai little sig.

Doing that defeats the whole purpose of having a neck-thru. What you're suggesting just adds complication with no real benefit.

neck-thru implies one solid piece of wood acting as the neck and body, what your thinkin about doing is just a glued in neck joint with a bolt on neck.

Yor thinking more along the lines of a set neck. Your not going to gain the advantages of a neck through and you'l looose the convenience of a bolt on.

The only way to do that is to:
Take off the neck and get ride of it, it won't be used anymore (for this guitar anyway)
Buy or make a new neck-thru neck.
Measure the width of the body section of neck and cut it out of the body.
Glue the neck in between the two wings of the body and hope the neck joint isn't too akward...
