Here's a question which might be an oddball question: What kind of glue would work best for a set neck build? I have used marine epoxies for furniture building with great results. The epoxy fills gaps completely and makes the joint strong, solid and monolithic without a huge amount of clamping pressure. Once it has cured, it is stronger than the wood. I have not used hide glues. The disadvantages, in my mind, are the heat necessary and the clamping requirements. The advantage is that hide glue draws the joint together in a way epoxy doesn't. These are the two glues I'm thinking about using, with epoxy being my preference. I don't know what it does to transmitted vibrations. I'm sure it would be plenty strong for a guitar neck joint. Hide glue is the traditional adhesive, so I'm sure it would transmit vibration just fine, but I'm not sure it's strong enough to glue a Fender style neck to a Fender style body. Since somebody here has already probably tried something like this, I figured I would ask here first.
