komodo Posted October 30, 2015 Report Share Posted October 30, 2015 (edited) I'm no stranger to guitars and building. I've been doing it since high school, and have played most of my life. I'm familiar with the arguments for or against one or the other, as well as the traditions and history. As I progress on my current build, my wife asks me why I would glue it in and not just bolt it on? Strangely, I had no good answer. There are so many benefits to bolt on that I had a hard time justifying why I would do a set neck other than "perceived quality difference" or a tiny bit of extra sustain - that honestly I believe to be negligible after all the pickups and electronics.I thought I'd ask the group for their thoughts, even though this has probably been discussed before in multiple ways. PS - And just for a tiny wrinkle, here is a picture of a mini-guitar I built for my son that has NO joint, but was cut from a single piece of white limba (korina).
