Just acquired this model baby jumbo in excellent cosmetic shape but has a problem with the action and it looks like it will need the neck reset.... Does anyone know if there is anything unusual about the neck joint that would prevent me from attempting this repair myself?
Thanks in advance.
Usually two methods used to join necks to the bodies, "bolt-on" and dovetailed.
It takes some pretty sophisticated equipment to steam the neck out of the body...and some rather specific skills that are part of learning lutherie in general. IMHO it is not the kind of repair I would undertake on my own, but perhaps if the guitar were cheap enough it might be a good platform for a learning experience...not much ventured, not much lost if it doesn't turn out well.
I wouldn't try one on my own.....just sayin'.....
