Which Kit is for Me? ‘Set-In’ Neck or ‘Bolt-On’ Neck

Since the birth of the first guitars, there has been the debate of ‘Set-In’ vs ‘Bolt-On’ guitars. Quite simply, the only difference is you need to glue in a ‘Set-In’ neck to the body of the guitar with wood glue and bolt on a ‘Bolt-On’ neck using screws. The debate is that Set-In holds a better tone by being part of the guitar due to the glue binding it – but the reality is that if that statement is true, you will likely only notice the difference with specialised equipment, if even noticeable at all.  It’s the same debate as Superman being better than Spiderman; it’s all down to personal preference.

We offer both Bolt-On and Set-In neck guitars. Bolt-On already have the bridge and tailpiece holes pre-drilled into the body of the guitar (because we can be 100% sure of how the neck will lie). A Set-In neck requires you to glue the neck into the body of the guitar and thus we cannot be sure of even the slightest movement which will affect the placement of the bridge and tailpiece. If you choose a Set-In neck, you will have to manually determine where the best location is to drill in the bridge and tailpiece holes only once the neck is attached, and only then drill them yourself.

If you are looking for an easier build, choose a Bolt-On, if you are looking for a slightly more challenging build, choose a Set-In.
