Ok, here is my crazy idea. What would happen if I was to remove the neck of my Epiphone Thunderbird, score the 'meeting' surfaces, and then glue with very strong wood glue, using the screws to clamp the neck to the body while the glue sets. Would i have a set neck bass? How would it hold up to s shop purchased set neck bass? I am trying to get as close to the Gibson Thunderbird as I can through mods. Currently I have: Replaced the tone pot with 250k Audio taper instead of 500k Orange Drop 0.22 capacitor Graphtech Black TUSQ nut Gibson silver 'witch hat' knobs If anyone else knows of any more mods I can do please tell me.
