Best Bolt-On Neck Electric Guitars in 2022

Here you'll find the best Bolt-On Neck electric guitars. Even though this type of neck was looked down upon for a long time, nowadays bolt-on necks are well built and provide just as much sustain as any other join method. First of all, it's cheap to make because it consists of simply 4 bolts that attach the neck to the body. And you can travel with the guitar more easily, swap out the neck if you damage it, or upgrade to a more comfortable neck later on.

We've found exactly 911 guitars like this in production this year. You can see them all by clicking on 'Load More' at the end of this list. You can use our filters to the left to see only the exact types of guitar you want. You can also click on "Compare" to get a deep spec comparison between two guitars of your choice. This list is updated daily automatically as we add new guitars to our database. We'll show you first the best ones according to our automated scoring system, which takes into account dozens of parameters to determine the build quality, playability, pickups quality, value for money and more.
