With guitar building deeply ingrained in my soul I tend to stick with things that I've done for the past 16 years with my guitars. Neck blocks being one of them.
It may be a bit of an overkill but I believe a mortise and tenon neck to body connection is a pretty reliable joint and a good way to transfer vibration throughout the whole instrument.
What say ye?

Neck blocks...

If my end blocks have to fit curved sides I laminate thin pieces of vertical grain wood pressed against the sides/mold. The resulting piece gets sanded flat on the interior side, then is glued to a larger block of horizontal grained wood.
I use a butt joint, no mortise and no tenon.
