You can surely improve the Squier a lot, but lumies are just champs in that discipline :)

That said, most guitars have enough sustain for me, so it's not a deal-breaker unless it's really abysmal (like tone dying out in 2 seconds or such). And for extreme sustain one will use some sort of sustainer or heavy compressor anyway.

Saw this on the Kramer Guitars FB. I confess, first thought was "why?" Aluminum, and even graphite, necks have been tried before--and guitarists just ended back with wooden necks. Today's roasted / torrified wood necks are super stable and smell like maple syrup. :thumbs

I would also politely disagree on lumies having amazing sustain. Maybe it was that bowling ball fretboard that the original Kramer lumie necks had, I actually thought they had a pretty flat and dull tone. Of course, could've been my (lack of) playing ability too. :bananahead
