If you get a quality guitar I don't think you need be concerned with neck replacement. It's a pretty rare occurance. If you get a cheap guitar, you'd probably just get another than replace the neck anyway.

Bolt ons - think Fender
Set necks - think Gibson

I think the more important question for you is shape and thickness of the neck for your own comfort and playability. I find a different size neck can make me play slightly differently (sometimes change is a good thing), I also find a thin neck (for me anyway) can make my hand start to cramp up during a long gig.

My preferred neck is a mid to heavy '59 Les Paul profile, leaning towards the '58, even though I have pretty small hands.
