Neck-through construction is significantly harder to mass-produce than bolt-on or set-in neck constructions and is primarily found on high-end guitars. It is somewhat more common in basses than in guitars. Neck-thru construction allows easier access to upper frets, because there is no need for a heel — the thickened area where a neck would "bolt-on" (although technically, 3-4 large screws are used) to the body. Many musicians assert that neck-through construction provides greater sustain and stay in tune longer. There is little formal research on this topic, but what exists does not support this assertion.[1]

No, SGs are set-neck.


He's right. Sorry I was thinking of the FireBird for some reason...

Check out Ibanez AANJs.

Also why are you looking for a new guitar if you like this one?

The SG is rather versatile, especially with a coil tap on the neck bucker.
