set neck plans anyone?

I would like to try and make a Custom Telecaster Spalted Maple rose

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/p...tar?sku=513879

It has a set neck. Does anyone have plans or is there a post about making a set neck guitar that I might be able to modify for this build?

Thanks

Steve

the plans will be mostly the same as a bolt on. simply route the neck pocket to an appropriate angle and depth. Doesn't matter so much as to exactly "how" per say. You can use les paul long tenon or PRS stuff for examples of sizes and measurements

Plenty of set necks here:

It's fairly easy to make a 1.5 wide by 1.5 tall x 3+" long mortise and tenon joint. You just decide what angle you need and either put that on the tenon or build it into the mortise.

And don't worry too much about the size of the tenon. It doesn't need to be huge. Titebond original has a bond strength of 3,600 lb/sqin - the wood will give way long before the glue joint does.

More info about calculating the forces at the neck joint at http://damacleod.wordpress.com/2011/...ematics-ahead/

As you know a longer tenon means a better guitar. Ask Gibson about skimping on tenons...LOL.

A longer tenon allows you to have a smaller heel, which allows you to have better access on higher frets. Theres little doubt that a large tenon is superior to a "small tenon".
