Ask Franky (see picture above).
Wait.......does this mean humans are stylistically all Flying V's?
Recent papal bulls? nah...
Tell her that if she picks her nose, her brains are going to fall out. My parents got me with that one until I got wise and then just started picking again.
Realistically, even in the photo posted by the OP, all of those are screws. What we call 'Bolts' are 'Hex Head Cap Screws'
Source: I drink and I know things.
Maybe the prototype neck WAS bolted on?
Then they changed to screws but the name stuck?
I once saw a movie that suggested this would be the case. I recall a real growling roar, also.
Why Bolton?....Why not Wigan....Manchester or Rochdale?......
These are coach bolts.
Always use bolts. Never ever screw your coach.
Do whatever you like to your bass. As long as you fix the neck.
The definition of a bolted connection refers to both the male and female parts of the fastener not being fixed to the parts to be fastened.
If you weld the nut to one of the fastened parts and turn the male fastener to tighten it, a bolt becomes a screw because of the application.
The fastener did not change, the use defines the term to describe it.
In engineering, we try to use precise terminology so everyone understands things the same way.
My granddaughter might see a moth and call it a pretty butterfly. An entomologist, (and I, if I know the difference) will correct her. Her grandmother will agree it's a pretty butterfly. Sorry, I just can't help myself.
Machine "screws" have "machine threads". Lag bolts are still bolts even though they don't require a nut or threaded insert or Tee nut.
We ought to be discussing the difference between C# and Db (they are spelled different on the musical staff but not on the tab sheet). not the differences between screws and bolts. This is suppose to be music instrument forum, not a freshman engineering drafting class. If you have or have had registered engineering status, I'm all ears like a jack rabbit. (EIT or FE status would also be acceptable). otherwise, let us stick to the music business. (Ok, I have seen tuned bolts used like bells, and have seen an all metal merrimba, but that discussion hasn't been part of this thread. )
I have built a few decks in my life, and I always used what I call lag screws to fasten the ledger board to the building.
Oh yeah, a marimba. It's the same thing as a steel drum, right?
The terminology isn't at all precise if it names an object differently depending on what happens to a different object. In your analogy that would be like insisting that butterflies only land on plants growing in the ground, but if it lands on a plant in a pot, it is more precise to call it a 'hiftylump' and insisting everyone conform.
I just go by what the experts and accepted authorities who came before us, (and are way smarter than I am) have defined as the correct terminology.
(Actually there is logic to the terminology, but I'm about to have a little, (more) Irish whiskey, and don't want to get into any arguments tonight).
I had an opportunity to play assist on a marimba, roots and thirds, just like playing bass.
Think xylophone, but homemade.
steel drum, and I've seen a few while in Florida, has tuned leaves, which are typically cut from the original drum head.
My 1970 Ampeg/Dan Armstrong uses chromed carriage bolts to hold the neck on. Nuts are under the pickguard.
Those people weren't so clear on planets, thought Venus was two different stars, defined the primary charge carrier as negative and a bunch of other dumb things. Tradition isn't a great defence.
The terminology defines an application, not an object.
