Should I go for bolt-on? Set neck? Neck-through-body? The web is full of advice - but can I trust it?
Do an internet search, and you'll find TONS of articles and videos comparing neck joints of guitars. The forums are saturated with opinions on the topic as well. So why to make yet another video about neck joints?? Well, a lot of the content available tends to repeat the same old myths: Bolt-on loses energy... set-neck has the best sustain... neck-thru is the most stable... blah blah blah.
Unfortunately, a lot of the available content on this topic is.. well, embarrassingly bad. Claims and opinions that are based on shady theories without offering a single piece of evidence. Well... is there ANY good information available? Watch the video and find out! :)
This broadcast is targeted to all of you who enjoy guitars and basses, be it players, enthusiasts or collectors alike! The program is not about the guitars we make in my company Ruokangas Guitars. I'm doing this for you, who are interested in learning more about your instrument. The brand or monetary value of your guitar makes no difference whatsoever.
This podcast was originally published as a live stream on YouTube, and the imagery of the original video is obviously missing from this audio-only version. Tune in on YouTube and search Weekly Wednesday Live Q&A with Juha, and you'll find the originals!
Talk to you soon,
