Neck wood choices

Option #1 All Maple

This is the most traditional neck wood. Dense, hard and strong, offering great sustain and stability. The tone is bright. Maple must be finished to protect from warping. The figure varies greatly and does at times contain some birdseye. Most often flatsawn or quartersawn.

Option #2 Rosewood fingerboard/Maple neck

One of the most popular fingerboard woods, Rosewood has the warm "rock-n-roll" tonality you’ve heard on many of the most famous rock albums in history. Rosewood contains natural oils so a finish is not required and the feel is also smooth and fast.
