Juha @Ruokangas – Short or long tenon

In this new chronicle I asked Juha Ruokangas about a hotly debated subject regarding set neck guitars: the size of the tenon, should it be long or short. What are the impact on the tone of the instruments? What's left of wood when you route a hole for the neck pickup?
