This looks more cut in.

Hey Steve to make it clearer here is a picture showing what Joel does in the process (although it's not on my guitar)

Joel notches both pieces, rather than relying solely on a glue joint to hold the structure. This way he gets mechanical stoppage. This is different than he believes how Jeff does it.

At the start Joel reached out to Jeff that gave him his full permission to use the idea.

In the end Joel wanted to make it his own anyway and came up with a new take that he believes would be superior to his needs.

Hope that clarifies it
