Vintage V100 Neck Angle

Hi there,

I am considering building a custom guitar body from reclaimed wood and using all parts (except the body) from a cheap Vintage V100 I have access to.

I don't have guitar building experience but have a decent amount of woodworking experience and figured it would be a fun project which can always be undone if needed. The challenge of doing this with a Gibson-style guitar over a Fender style is - of course - neck angle.

Can anyone tell me if Vintage builds the neck angle into the neck itself or the neck cavity in the body? Obviously, my preference here would be the neck itself but can try shimming and hoping if it's the cavity.

Any help is appreciated.
