neck-through VS bold on

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by JWS, Feb 26, 2002.

  1. Hi,

    I own and owned neck-through and bold-on Basses.

    I really can´t say that you can go deeper with bold-on or neck-through. The only differences I noticed are the following:

    Neck-through has more sustain and less punch.

    On the other side bold-on has more punch and less sustain.

    But the sound comes from all parts of your bass. So it apply´s not for every bass in this or that construction.
