vtpcnk said:>Neck-throughs are awesome. About the only drawback is that if the nec gets seriously damaged, the entire guitar is history.
but doesn't the same thing apply to set necks as well?
Broken headstock yes, broken neck no. I have a great great luthier near me, Tim's Guitars, and I've watched remove set neck from a Gibson. He just pops out the frets over the heel, drills a few small hole in the fret grooves and applies steam through small needles attached to a tea kettle. Neck comes off very easilly after a lttle time.vtpcnk said:>No, you can remove the neck on a set neck,
so all those snapped neck gibson sgs etc, is it cheaper to reglue the broken neck than to fit a new neck?
