    You can put the neck angle into either the body or the neck. The usual way would be to put the angle as accurately as you can into the body pocket, then make final adjustments with the neck.

    I did the opposite on the couple I had made. I made the pocket parallel to the body top, then held the neck in a milling vise at a 3 degree angle and cut it at the angle. Then sanded to adjust after checking that everything fit properly.
