I think its awesome, after reading on it as it turns out this is the classical time honored approach.
yeah i was quite uneasy about it at first, but the luthiers that teach in the construstion class assured me it would be fine, and if ian noyce gives me advice to do with luthiery, i take it
i figure with the combination of quartersawn maple and carbon fibre i shouldnt have any issues with the neck. it will only be strung with 46s anyway
