I'm in the process of building a Les Paul Style guitar. Although it was made to be a bolt-on neck guitar (like a Fender), I'm wondering if there is a possibilty of gluing the neck to the body permanantly w/o the use of the 4 neck screws & neck plate? The TR adjustment nut is at the hdstk.
As of now, the neck fits in the pocket...just right! Once setup w/ the correct neck angle, so the strings have enough height at the saddles, I can see no need for the neck to come off. Would gluing alone have sufficient strength to hold the neck in place. Or...maybe even using a single bolt (fastener) via the neck pickup cavity also...like an acoustic guitar would be bolted together?
