    Here's a link to "The Stambaugh Twins". These were two basses created equally in every respect except that one's a bolt-on, the other a neck through...

    I'd love to get my hands on them to see what the difference really is...

    Sound cool?:cool:

    mmmmm, both are very pretty. "Wow" at that wood/pattern on the front. I'd take either one.

    This was picked up off the website for Luthier's Access Group. They're the rep for Stambaugh basses. Since they're selling them, I doubt they'd stake any claims.

    they shouldn't have claimed that they figured out exactly what the difference was then. They could easily have just stated the bolton's strengths vs the neckthrough's strengths. I doubt any buyer would feel hesitant or insulted if the writer said "the bolton is a bit punchier but the neckthrough is a bit tighter playing" or something like that. In fact, comparing the two would probably help a potential buyer make a better decision.

    Good reason to contact Dan for further info.
     
  12. Wow, I like em. Is there any reason that only the B string is thru-body and the rest not? Is it for the extra tension?
     
  13. Yeh there both good IMO go for the neck through cause on the back you can have races with spiders or something

    Just like having the power go out at the climax of a movie. Really nice basses though.
     
  17. Well there's a whole new arguement; Did time exist before the electric bass? :rolleyes:

    Does time exist?
    Or is it just something man invented, to conveniantly describe change?
