Stepped neck Joint

This picture shows in detail the " Stepped" or 'offset' neck joint I developed for
both the Medusa and Electra guitar models.
The neck joins at the 18th fret on the bass side and the 19th fret on the treble side
on a 22 fret guitar. 
This method allows a very smooth and well contoured 'heel' to the neck, especially
on the treble side, to allow for even easier access to the top frets when the guitar 
has 'offset horns'.
