GENERALLY it's through necks, because they have no heel.

However, there are a lot of set neck guitars these days where the heel is sanded down, so they feel the same as neck-thrus.


+1. Guitar like Hamer started that trend IIRC... Fender Showmasters are like that too. The line between neck-thru and setneck is really blurred nowaday, as they are both really similar to each other, unless you get a more traditional guitar, like a Gibson or PRS.

Yeah, Gibson and PRS both have massive heels. Actually, PRS doesn't have so much of a heel as an un-carved section of the neck.

Close to the part where it meets the body, the neck is square. Not all, but a few PRS have this

Great upper fret access. Not as much as to do with the neck as it does the body design though. I find it more difficult to reach the 20-22nd frets on a les paul or explorer than say an Ibanez RG with the soloist (very cutaway lower horn)
