Hello all, I picked up a neck from a 6 string solid body. Any ideas or pictures of the best way to install it into a cigar box? I never used a pre made neck in any of my builds. Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

you would need to make a pocket inside the box from hardwood, tricky to set up but had good results...

Thanks for the reply Slowpaw. I guess you mean something like a solid body inside a guitar box? At least that's what I envision. I now have 2 necks, I better get busy.
PS. Nice guitar you built there!
