  • What do people think about bolt-on 24.75" scale guitars?

    I have very little experience with this configuration in a guitar. What are your thoughts?

    I think they're great. Thanks for the excuse to post these!

      My FlatFive fits this description,it's a great guitar .







      To be honest though,I don't give neck joints much thought .

        What is that Yamaha? I played a bolt on AEX 500 yesterday that had my mind spinning trying to figure out ways to get it.

          Little difference between that and a bolt-on guitar of another scale. I like my Fender Cyclone a lot.

            Just got this mahogany Peavey Patriot: 24.75"; bolt-on, micro-tilt; single coil Super Ferrites, fat bridge. Astonishingly GREAT guitar!

              That's the 520. My Aex502 is identical, but with P-90's. I like the 13 3/4 radius neck. They are spruce top, chambered alder body.

                Interesting. I was thinking, it's either the best of both worlds or it's lacking in every department.



                I know there's a lot more to a guitar than just the neck joint...

                  I'd say neither. Neck joint and scale length are just two of many factors that determine how a guitar sounds and feels.

                        As long as it's a well made guitar, I don't care what type of neck joint it has. All of them can sound and play fine, whether it's a set net, neck thru or bolt on.

                          I absolutely love my Fusion Deluxe Short Scale. One of the easiest playing and great sounding pieces I own...

                              24 3/4 scale guitars are just that much more comfortable to me. I don't feel the strain on my fingers to fret any notes.



                              Although, 25.50 scale offers more advantage for those who spend most time playing up the neck. Which is not me. When I do, I'm all about the bar chords
