Because the neck extends uninterrupted through to the end of the bass.
Because best bass for metal has bolts.
I use actual bolts.
"Screw off neck" sounds even worse.
Stop giving her so many choices.
Because you're not screwing the neck into the body , you're using screws or bolts to attach it. There's no screwing action of the neck itself.
The fact that you tighten, and loosen those fasteners into a fixed female thread by turning the head makes them screws.
I though this was about the Bonner Bolton neck. Pro bull rider who sustained a C2 neck fracture and lived to tell about it.
It's all a disinformation campaign started by Gibson to get OCD people to prefer set necked basses.
I think it comes from Leo, who also thought vibrato was the same thing as tremolo. Yet it remains pedantic to point that out to people who are, somehow, able to get their point across calling it "trem."
Not worth worrying about. You can insist on using the term "screw-on," but 90% of the rest of the music world will conclude you're a tool if you do.
It seems by this definition that I can magically turn a bolt into a screw simply by changing which end of the two pieces I'm holding fixed. I'm sure someone meant well, but this smells of a convenience definition which people are taking a little too seriously.
Is this what they mean by "First World Problems"? And anyway, you know that any phrase with "Screw" in it, is gonna enrage the "Everything you say is offensive to me" crowd that seems to run the world these days....
why do they call it "jumbo" when it's a shrimp?
Humans are basically neck-thru body design. Would we be punchier if we had bolt-on necks?
We don't use the term "screw on" because.............
There's enough sex and drugs in rock 'n' roll, and Leo was HAVING NONE OF IT!!!!!!!!
Ask her to pick yours.
And we should always use the right tool for the job.
