I am wondering what people's opinions are on the way the neck joins the body on basses.
I mainly play electric guitar and a bit of bass also.
Any of the guitars I own have either a bolt on or set in neck, but I have heard people say a thru neck gives the best sustain as body and neck are made from same piece of wood?
The reason I ask is that I am thinking of building my second bass from one of the DIY guitar kits you can buy on the web.
This one is a 6 string fretless: http://diyguitarkits.esellution.co.u...diy-thru-neck-
If you look at the second picture (shows back of the bass, it looks as if it is one piece of wood, but I can't tell for sure) Could it be that it is really 2 pieces of wood and they are very carefully joined?
The reason I ask is that if I found the thru neck setup to have less desirable sustain than a bolt on job, do you think it would be possible to un-join the neck and fit a bolt on one instead? Or is this just a crazy idea, ad should I just leave it as it is?
haven't bought it yet, but would appreciate any thoguhts before I buy, but it does seem like a very good price for what I see in the picture.
Let me know...
