This Guitar Is A
Bolt In Neck
Also Available In Neck Thru &
Bolt on & bolt in necks got
their bad reputation during the 70ís when
companies were making them with poor fitting or
loose neck joints. A loose neck joint causes
instability and detracts horribly from tone
quality. A loose neck joint will also cause
tremendous loss of sustain. Some companies in
the 70ís were mass producing guitars as fast as
they could and were simply not paying attention
to the neck joint! The necks were not fitted
correctly and in many cases the strings were
actually hanging off the edge of the neck.
Fact Of The Matter is "BOLT IN" NECKS SOUND BETTER.
1: There is no glue in the
neck joint to muffle the high end coming off your fingerboard
2: We never even let
any paint or body filler in our bolt in neck joints.
3: On all Quicksilver
guitars we use our
exclusive direct coupling system on our neck joints. This system
is by far the best way to attach a neck to a body. It only costs us
about $15.00 per guitar to offer it. We don't know of any other
company today that makes this available even at an extra charge. All
Quicksilvers since 2005 have been fitted with this system at no
extra charge. We get Fenders & PRS guitars shipped in from all over
the world to get this feature installed.
4: Quicksilver also
direct couples or
hard mounts the pickups which greatly adds to sustain and
eliminates alot of unwanted feedback.
5: We have opted to
offer several different bridges but we have found that the Tune O
Matic Bridge is what many people prefer. We have been able to
determine that the best thing about a Les Paul guitar is the bridge.
In fact we feel that the main reason people like Les Pauls other
than nostalgia and being old school is the sound made possible by
using this type of bridge. Our main competitors use a wrap around
bridge that does not come close to sounding as good as the original
tune o matic. Ed Roman has opted to use even a higher quality
tune O matic with magnetic poles and or bolts to lock the bridge
itself to the studs.
6: All Quicksilver
custom guitars come with the ability to place the knobs anywhere the
customer requires usually for no charge. Customers can opt for
7 or 8 different combinations of knobs & switches usually at no
extra cost. Another reason why a custom guitar is always better than
production cookie cutter guitar.
7: Best of all the prices for
these guitars are lower than any custom Fender or cookie cutter PRS
