If you want to be a slave to a design the primary purpose of which was to build an instrument as cheaply as possible you are welcome to it. The fact of the matter is that whatever noises you can get from a bolt-on neck, you can get from a through neck, but not vice-versa. I won't get into what is a better or a worse noise, because that is subjective. But, keep in mind that many studio musicians, well, musicians in general, are poor, and so can only afford cheaply made instruments, which is not to suggest that these instrument don't, or can't be made to, sound good. My opinion, which you are free to reject, is simply that a through neck results in a vastly superior bass guitar. I'd suggest that you try one, but we all have to find our own path. Let's not forget that the original Les Paul was a through neck. This should make at least the idea of a through neck appealing even to a Luddite.
