    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

    Just make sure the stock you use for the neck is straight, outside of that,, have fun. Here is a set neck I am building.

    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".
