in the neckthrough's case, yeah...they are

the neck is the main "body", and the rest of the body attaches like "wings" to the neck

a set neck is just a neck glues into the body

you make them exactly how they look like they're made you glue the body of the guitar to the side of the neck.

Basically you have a neck and the body which consists of two wings. The neck is usually 3 or more pieces to help with the stability of having a neck long enough to stretch the entire length of the body.

A set neck guitar is just a neck where the tenon in glued into the neck pocket and doesn't go through the length of the guitar.

EDIT: Carousel what guitar is that. The back is smexy! lol

ok,thx...so does wood glue carry the sustain that 1 piece of wood does?
lets say i want to build one someday,and i buy a neck...can i glue it in really well,or do i need to bolt-on?

Yeah can glue it very well into the pocket. There is a special glue for this the name just escapes me right now. Just make sure you get clamps to keep the neck set until the glue dries.
