Has there been a documented discussion anywhere online on the process of converting a dovetail neck joint to a bolt on? I am a beginner at repairs, but jumping in head first and willing to make mistakes. I would however like to make things as easy a possible. I am on the brink of attempting my first neck reset, and wondering if this is the way to go. Seems like converting to a bolt-on might eliminate some room for error and make the process a little easier. Its an old Guild D-40 with LOTS of cosmetic damage, so I'm not worried about how the finish around the joint looks, just how it plays and sounds. Also not worried about protecting any vintage value. This guitar was on its way to a trash can when I saved it.
I would greatly appreciate any detail on how to go about this process, potential pitfalls, etc.
