is it possible to some how make a bolt on neck, set? could you glue it in real strong and tight, and then take the screws out and rework the neck joint to make it a smooth contour? u get what i mean?

Yes, but the only advantage would be the smoother neck heel. You're better off just leaving it.

to make a smoother neck heel.

so it is possible, and and if done absolutely perfect, there wouldn't be any disadvantages?

do a search. I remember a few months back someone asked the same thing and for some reason it wouldn't work. I'm sure you'll be able to find it.

ah i found the thread!

the reason i am asking this is because i would love to customize an Explorer type body to my exact liking and specs, but i dont have to money to buy one with a set neck. i could maybe dish out enough for a cheaper Explorer like the LTD Ex-50 that has the bolt on. i just dont have the time to build one from scratch, SOOOO my idea was just to buy the Ex-50, use some strong ass stuff to glue the neck in place, reshape the heel , repaint the guitar snow white, rewire it with some choice pups, put all gold hardware on it, BAM! a beastly axe, customized to my liking.

My only argument with this is that you could do that w/o glue. Just shape the heel, shorten the screws accordingly and use recessed washers instead of a plate on the back.

Maybe he doesn't want to look at his sexy set-looking neck and see those ugly-assed screws.



He could recess the screws further into the neck/body, provided they are shortened, then just sand over the holes or put some kind of removable filler material there to hide 'em.


Looks like a "problem solved" to me.
