26 66gent 1 month ago Here's a pic from when I reset the neck on my '55, as you can see the joint isn't very long, ends about the 17th fret which is where you'd want to inject the steam. I think this one went back to the factory for a super early reset - there were dowels going downwards under the 17th fret marker and the one going across into the body that you can see in the pic. I read somewhere thats what they were doing before the screws. I think Gasmoney's theory makes the most sense since a screw there isn't affecting anything other than the tongue. Still curious about that short block inlay - is there a ton of filler or does it fill the cavity? We need more pics!!!!
