Neck through vs. bolt on
What do you prefer? I have a Spector ns-20005 that could sustain a note through a 12 minute song. Lol. Not sure I'd need it but damn it plays nice and I guess that is why I like it. And judging from this post I like beer too :)

So far...bolt on. I've yet to play a neck through I loved. Granted I haven't played enough neck throughs to dismiss them entirely yet.
|bassgod0dmw ||09-12-2013 08:23 PM |
I like the lack of obstruction on a neck through and the physical beauty.
Otherwise I'm cool with bolt on. Most of my basses are.

Yes. I like beer too.

I like neck-through beer.

I've owned/played both. I've never noted any distinctly defining playing characteristics of either one, except maybe easier high fret access on a neck-thru.
It's just so subjective to the specific instrument, and there's no way to "switch out" a bolted-on neck to a set neck (or thru-neck) on the same instrument to see if there's a real "difference."

I think they're both good. My Pbass has a bolt on, and my soon-to-be rickenbacker has a neck thru.

My luthier likes bolt-on, but that's his problem. I've owned some of each, an even 50/50 split, & how much I enjoyed each had nothing to do with how the necks were attached. I've noticed some dead spots on my neck-throughs that I understand are typical.

To paraphrase, "a quality instrument is easily repaired"
I find that even though I have no problem with set neck, I like to know that my bolt on is capable of easy neck replacement etc. Both are fine though

I have no preference. Both are great.
|EagleMoon ||09-12-2013 09:06 PM |
No preference here either. I've had some real dog neck-throughs and bolt-on's both.
|SactoBass ||09-12-2013 09:09 PM |
I have owned both, and I enjoy both. No preference here.
Both, because it really depends on the individual instrument.
