    It looks (the picture is tiny) like a set neck. Neck through's bring the neck from the headstock all the way to the strap button! This one looks like the body is seperate from the neck, but glued or joined instead of using a neck plate and screws.

    Fodera Monarchs are set-necks; there is the potential of nt.

    It could be a neck-through with a top and bottom cap, but the bottom appears to be rather thick, so I'm thinking it's glued into a routed channel.

    This would be more aptly titled a set-through, because the neck extends at least partially through the body, but not entirely.

    yes, I'd say SN. Mainly because the body is 2 pieces, joined in the center (No wings). However, you can find a NT in this similar look, but more likely than none, they're capped on the back.... A set neck can go a little further into the body, than a bolt on (More gluing surface), generally to the neck pickup. Making a NT in the fashion of the pic, will require more work to do.

    also, if you guys noticed, there isnt a slot for where you could adjust the truss rod..

    I guess could write or call Fedora to get a definitive answer.

    What does that have to do with set neck or neck through? Unless I am missing something, that does not matter. Fodera Monarchs have the truss rod adjustment on the headstock, btw. And have a set neck or dovetail design. The only Fodera with the adjustment at the bass of the neck is the NYC, as far as I know.

    Hence why calling it a ST [set-through] would probably be the most applicable term. Set necks are set on the very end, through necks extend through the bass. This is the best of both worlds and is common in a few ESP models (they refer to it as ST construction).


    Lollerskates. :p
