I am planning to buy a Les Paul like guitar and apply a flame maple veneer (very thin) to its top, I just wonder I think the thk will be 1/16" or less, but hope that the hardware has enough adjustment to compensate. if this were a fender style bolt on neck, I would simply glue the veneer to the neck cavity, but in the case of a glued in neck this is not an option. looking for advice, comments, opinion.

If you're planning on doing this to a carved top instrument, I think you will find that it is impossible without some sort of industrial press, even at 1/16".
