Introducing our Wildwood Series

Thru-neck designs are inherently stronger than a bolt on and are far less likely to be affected by temperature & humidity changes. Due to the nature of neck-through instruments, they tend to have better craftsmanship than their bolt-on counterparts.

It takes time to make these instruments, and doing it wrong can potentially ruin the entire project, which is why you typically see neck-through-body options on more expensive instruments, like high-end production models and custom shop designs.

For mass-produced guitars, bolt-on is much easier and cost-effective to make compared to neck-through-body, and this is why it’s the preferred choice for many manufacturers and millions of consumers.

Unfortunately, this can also mean that those guitars don’t have as much attention to detail and care than neck-through models.

However, this isn’t always the case, and it’s highly dependent on the models that you’re comparing. Neck-through guitars are almost always more expensive than a bolt-on one that is at a similar level. The same goes for comparing neck-through vs. set-neck.

This is because of the craftsmanship mentioned before and the time it takes for a luthier to make one.  With bolt-on guitars, attaching the neck onto the guitar is quite straightforward, and it doesn’t take nearly as much work to put together.

Additionally, the parts don’t need to be made and assembled at the same spot, but that’s not the case with neck-throughs.

You’re paying extra for the look, consistency, and quality that comes from the attention that making a neck-through requires, and that’s why you’ll typically see this kind of work on mid-to-high-end instruments.


Luthier Built & Handcrafted

Every aspect of this investment grade solid body electric mandolin has been hand crafted inhouse at our rural workshop outside Downham Market in Norfolk, England.  The selection of tonewoods, the neckcarve, fret pressing, levelling and dressing, inlaying, slotting the bone nut, our unique nickel plated TOM bridges, the nitro cellulose spraying, polishing, wiring, our own custom wound pickups and on to the final setup & testing - each instrument is completely individual.  Every build includes a part of me.
