Is anybody familiar with the neck joint that Carlo Greco used on his flat top acoustics?

I can post up a couple pictures tomorrow too.  

I haven't been able to find the gap between the neck and block, as in a dovetail joint.

The headblock is also extra thick, I'm wondering if it's a mortise and tenon.

Thanks for any help.

we'll also need a birth certificate and x-rays to even "remotely"be able to help....I do like the x-ray idea though...can a heating blanket be converted to use as an x-ray device ?

I was hoping somebody here had done a reset on one of Carlo's flattops before.

I wish he had a website, or any contact info out there.

Try this.  http://www.namm.org/library/oral-history/carlo-greco (2005).  If he's not around, maybe the shop will know.  He was a major figure in Guild guitars before they left the East coast according to several of the bio's turned up on Google.

Also, see: http://theunofficialmartinguitarforum.yuku.com/topic/119405.  Greco apparently retired from building in 2011 at 85.  There's even a contact listed with a Greco web site: http://carlogrecoguitars.com/

There's a Guild book that mentions Greco. books.google.com/books?isbn=0634009664.

Google is your friend.  Search "Carlo Greco guitar maker."
