That's not a scarf joint, that's a stacked heel! Many guitars and basses use a stacked heel with no issues whatsoever.
The scarf joint is ofter found at the peghead end; classical guitars use a stacked heel and cut and rotate one thin board with a scarf joint at the peghead. Its very strong and makes better use of the available lumber. One piece guitar necks favour factory construction by semi-skilled labour but are very wasteful of materials...
