For this Instructable, you will need a Torx driver, a small Phillips head screwdriver, a hacksaw, some epoxy and a few mending plates.
Step 1: Disassembly
Put the two halves of the neck back together and reconnect them with a few screws. This will hold them together and make sure you get even, matching cuts. I decided to cut from after the screw post at the lower end of the circuit board and before the guitar strap knob. This allowed me to cut out about 3 3/4 inches out of the neck.
