    Hello folks, as the title says, i want to make a single cut bass with bolt-on neck joint, as the maple blank of the neck is not large enough to make a neck through bass. So far this is the only idea i've found:

    2 important things i'm looking for is stability and ergonomics when playing the upper frets

    I angle the screw where the neck first hits the body. That way you can contour the body angle more.
