i have this realy cool bolt on neck, but i want to make it a set neck. my idea was to drill out some holes in the guitar body, and matching holes into the neck, not on the back, more like into the body.

then, i get some wooden dowel or some metal pipe (i think the pipe would give it stronger connection, and a different tone)and glue it into the holes of the neck.

then, apply some glue to the pipes and slide it into the neck pocket.

if there are any other ways to do this, i would love to know.

please excuse the sh*tty drawing. i hope it's clear enough.

interesting idea but I dont know how it will work out with electronics and the pickup cavaty(sp?) for the neck pickup.

OH! Another thing! The frickin' "metalbar-that-keeps-the-neck-from-warping" thing I cant remember the real name for!

Truss rod? The thing that provides predictable, reliable structural support for the neck, and helps to compensate for neck bow.

This plan looks like a good way to snap all kinds of wood.

Why do you want to convert it to set neck? Seems just like a waste of time to me. It won't improve your sustain at all and is just a good way to waste wood.

Exactly, all it would do is make it a set neck, no improvements in anything at all.

i just like the feel of a set neck.

oh, and by the way backtothe70s, i was planing on making a LP junior model, so the neck pickups would have no place.

I don't see the point in it, really. I mean, if the neck snaps, you're ****ed. With a bolt on, you can take it off and replace it...

...but hey, not my guitar
