This is what appears underneath my TV reissue's pickguard. I thought that the long neck tenon would stretch farther down, but maybe I am not correct with that perception. Now looking forward to the Mojoaxe pickguard from @Danelectro

Well,.... the neck join on Juniors are different than Standards.

The originals don't have a tongue,...its the full width of the neck....that is why there is a shelf in the cutaway,...otherwise the side of the neck would be exposed in the cutaway like bolt on necks like Fenders...... but the neck never extended past the fretboard. Though this opening at the end seems smaller than the originals.

Like this broken Junior

Also they didn't need to add a wedge under the fretboard to elevate and angle the neck.

Looks like they're doing the 'save money' bit by just making a normal LP type tenon cut.

I think the vintage Jr had the neck shaft extending maybe 1-2cm beyond the fretboard end.....which then was routed down to the body plane.

That's the sort of reply I am thinking of....the Custom Shop says the long neck tenon is historically correct, but that may not be entirely correct. :(
