Has anyone reset the neck on a Madeira 12 string? It was Guilds import model from Japan. I was wondering if it has a bolt on neck with a tenon or not with a tenon. I remember some of the guitars from Japan had 1 bolt and a couple of dowels to hold the neck in place.

I would say that guitar probably has a dovetailed neck joint. That's my guess anyway! Let's see what some of the others say.
