EA16BP Neck Joint
« on: May 05, 2012, 06:16:37 PM »
Hey everyone,

I am trying to find some info on a friend's old guitar.  He has an EA16BP and the serial number is SC02031460.  I was curious if this was a bolt-on or a 5 dowel joint.  He is getting a new guitar but would like this to be playable again for sentimental reasons.  I'm willing to reset the neck and convert to bolt-on for him (if it's a dowel joint), but I just need to know what I am up against.  The angle is so bad that even a bridge shave won't cut it.

hello there, do you have pictures?  maybe if we see the problem visually we can think of a solution to remedy the bow... What kind of string did your friend use, steel or nylon strings?  what string guage was used?  i am not certain if EA16 has trus rod or not, so it could be a reason or cause of bow...  overtighten or undertighten can have bad effect on neck.
