Whats the difference between necks (set, through, bolt on, ect.)?

Difference is quality, sound, ect?

Set is glued on(Les Paul), through is one piece(Jackson's i think) and bolt on is screws(Fender, Gibson SG)

There's a big difference in sound and tone when it comes to different necks.

Ok whats the difference?

Is there one that is worse/better in quality of the guitar?

A set neck is glued in to the body, while a neck through extends through the body as the center of the body. I think that makes sense? A bolt on is self-explanatory. A set neck and neck though is said to have better sustain since it transmits the vibrations through the body better.

Not really, I find that you can get a god bolt on that has the same sound properties as a set in or through necks. Neck through are usually the best for fret acess, but like said, it all depends on the guitar. Also, Sustain can suffer if the bolt on is bad quality.

just a clarification, the examples of guitar to necks isn't 100% accurate. most all gibsons are glued on that I know of, and a lot of companys offer each different type of neck as you get higher and higher end through theyre guitars, so like, cheap jackson's dont have neck through and high end for other companys might have them too.

the difference is mostly the sustain... neck through have the highest sustain, then set, then bolt on.... i think...

plus if you have a neck through guitar, and your neck breaks, well guess what? your shit out of luck.
