this is from an earlier model (low 300s) before they started doing the hollowed out method. This is more like a solid top and solid bottom with space in between. Oddly enough, this neck fit into the other guitar I took apart which was a later standard...this one from an artist.

I am a tinkerer and just had to find out how these guitars were put together,

LOL (laugh out loud).....you can call me dank. All my friends do. That is Dank Bud. The kind!

Yea, pretty interesting, eh? I don't think they used this method for too long. I have already put the other one back together and I did not take close up photos. I messed up. The other design seems like it would be easier to make. Either way, the same result...one more thing to note. I did not take a measurement, but the neck on this model is about 1/4 inch thinner all the way down the neck. I much prefer a wider neck. Unfortunately this is a rare custom color, so I do not want to sell or trade it, but it is a much thinner neck width. I will measure it for all.
