Ok gang I know that for solid wood you cut at 12 or os degrees and line up so the join is about the second fret...... for a lam........ what about alternating the cut so that the lams aren't all cut at the same place. let me try to describe....... centre lam as usual. next two out, the neck piece carries on through and the head piece comes up to join underneath. next two as the centre. and so on ad nauseum. Yes. clamping will be awkward, but surely it'll be much stronger than the usual scarf? Anyone else thought about this or even tried it?
