    Will be interested in what you learn.

    I would not screw into the sides of the neck pocket. The wood is quite thin and not super dense. I would be afraid that it would not hold the weight.

    I am also cheap. I use the same blades as KC in places, and this sort of thing on the long places, particularly on basses. There are strongties in various sizes at our local big box stores.
