To give the thinner heel strength, inside the body is a 7075 Aluminum "T Block". The block ties the neck joint to the bridge plate which bolts to tapped holes in the T Block with 6-32 machine screws.
The strings feed thru a 3/16" brass anchor plate on the back side of the guitar. The anchor plate also bolts to the aluminum T Block with 6-32 machine screws. The CAD drawing below is a Tombstone guitar minus the body, showing how the aluminum T Block connects the bridge to the neck and how the location of the brass anchor plate.
Below are several images showing a Saguaro Tombstone body.
For those that feel the standard T shaped body cuts into their ribs will find the wedge shaped body alot more comfortable, eliminating the need for a tummy cut.
