I am a traditionalist when it comes to joinery, so I prefer the detail and coupling of wood to wood. However, I don’t mind the bolt-on because of the “convenience” factor and you will thank yourself if the neck needs a little tweaking without having to do a reset.We're doing bolt on for this one. He's doing a dovetail on the one he's building for his boss. He's there's pluses and minuses to both (like just about everything we've done so far). Do you have a preference? And if so, why? I'm working on getting a second set of sides bent so I can start on #2 when this one goes to the spray booth. I screwed up on half of the mahogany set I had so we're tried to re-bend them yesterday. If they don't come out usable, I'll switch to a set of ebony sides I have.
Do you have a favorite humidifier for inside a guitar case? I have a very old, very cheap one - it's a piece of porous ceramic inside a plastic yellow snap lid container.
