Upper horn Cutaway - How low can you go ?
Got another diy project coming up this winter .
I got a spare jaguar 34" bolt-on neck and I wanna try to do my own design for the body .
If I do the upper horn cutaway same as the lower on a jazz will I loose too much neck stability ?
Depends a bit on the material of the body, but you won't necessarily lose too much neck stability. As long as there is some "side" to the pocket to prevent too much side to side movement and the bolts are seated well, then it should not be a terrible problem. I worked on a jazz that had been radically cut around the pocket as the player was a lefty and played high. When I first got it from him, I thought "oh that's bad", but working on it over the years for him, it remained stable. Not what I would have predicted, but there you have it. This was an ash body...
