Epiphone Casino neck reset

Postby George Semenov » Sat May 13, 2017 11:40 am

I just bought an Epiphone Casino that had a horrible neck re-glue job. Is the neck/body joint a standard tenon or dovetail? Will the 17th fret give me good access to steam it apart?

Okay, I answered my own question. I don't need to go through the fret board to steam the neck apart. See pics. I am amazed that Epiphone sets a neck with so much slop. There is a 1 mm gap on both sides of the neck block. No wonder the the neck started to come apart for the previous owner.

Nothing that a little veneer can't shore up. I hope it turns into a decent player in no time.
