A bolt on is feasable, (bolted to a neck block, acoustic style. Not flat like a Fender.) I like the barrel bolt method, that combined with either a glu joint or a dovetail/mortise, or both.
Not to set a negative note, but Colin, the fretboard and frets appear to be in VERY poor condition, Depending on your expectations it may not be worth all the trouble.
To be honest I have no expectations for the impending build. Other than experience on successfully assembling the guitar.
The condition of the guitar was VERY poor. It was evidently a dumpster guitar that my local git shop had for a while and just decided to sell, the tailpiece pickguard and 3 post tuner I got off it are worth the 8.50. The fact that the neck was not bowed beyond reuse was a shock to me. Besides if worst comes to worse I can always remove the fretboard and install a new one. Shoot I will even have to install a new nut. Check out this headstock pic, the low E slot is busted.
