How to mount a 6 string acoustic neck to a cigar box

Hi all. I have a 6 string acoustic guitar carcass in my parts collection. I was wondering how difficult it would be to use the neck off of it on a CBG project? I've searched on the site here and while i did find photos of acoustic guitar necked CBG's i couldn't find any build photos. Any help would be much appreciated..   MikeSee More
