Although Ed Roman can be irritating (for many reasons that lawyers might prefer me to leave unsaid), but I have no major differences with his opinions about 24-fret necks - as featured on this Resurrection - and thruneck or tenon neck construction:

Bass guitars have long been less conservatively made than 6-strings and I have a thruneck (birdseye koa top and back on a mahogany body, coincidentally) Jim Reed bass with sustain characteristics that don't come out of my more vanilla bolt-ons. The tenon neck is really a thruneck but without the icky cosmetic issues that would affect an archtop.

My only slight quibble with the Resurrection is that the pups appear to be designed to just hang over the neck wood when they could've been settled right in there. Rather than old Gibsons, the design is an improvement on the original PRS neck join. Santana's sustain is partly down to his guitar's design as well as the prodigious number of knobs and switches on a Mesa Boogie.
