Lock nut question

Wouldn't it be better to have a screw on lock nut rather than a bolt through neck one? I would think that the screw on ones would be better but I have never seen an Ibanez with one, not even the signature models. Anyone know why? Thanks in advance.

I think what you're referring to is exactly what they did recently. It seems when they changed to the new trems, all the prestige guitars got screw-top lock luts. It only took them 15 years and thousands of neck cracks to figure that one out. Ever look in there and actually see the truss rod anchor?
