Hi Mark, just wanted to get some advice about my Epiphone FT570 based on your experience with the FT550.  Heel design looks the same, so I reckon the joints are the same, 4 dowels and a bolt.  How did you go about heating the neck joint (without toasting the MOTS inlay?)  How did you re-assemble it, did you use the same dowels?

Thanks in advance!

Aaargh! That wasn't what I wanted to hear, but thanks anyway.  I've done  a saw-off reset on my Yamaki and was hoping the bolt meant it was designed to come apart (like Taylor).  No such luck!  Thanks again.

Yes, I was surprised that the bolt is so close to the FB, it's the wrong place to provide support.  My idea now is to remove the strap button, and drill a pilot hole all the way through the neck block. .  Then simply cut off the heel, seems no point in trying to steam it - unless the heel is recessed into the neck block???  On reassembly, replace the strap button screw with a suitable bolt (M5 maybe, with a head that can fit into the button), going all the way through, with nut and washer under the neck block.  Does that sound like a plan?
