Kiesel Video - Neck Through & Single Cut

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by HenningH, Feb 1, 2018.

  1. Hey guys,

    I was watching a video about Kiesel bass guitars, and it brought up two questions in my mind.

    1. Why do people prefer bolt on necks? I would have thought that neck through is the better way to go.

    2. What is single cut versus double cut?



    PS - Here's the video:

    Some people say they are punchier. I think if the neck pocket is tight and well fitted, sustain and other things are equal.

    Benefits of bolt on: can change out a bad or broken neck.

    Benefits of neck through: better reach of the higher frets.

    Everything else is probably subjective.

    Bolt on necks pre-date through neck guitars, and are cheaper to produce, as they don't require large lengths of timber, especially when you look at higher grades of timber with figuring etc.

    The pro's & con's of bolt neck vs. set neck vs. through neck have been debated many times in many forums.
