Finish For A Curly Maple Neck

Recommended Posts

I will soon be doing a neck from curly maple, its red maple so it will need some different care in finishes I'm sure. I know this wood is not first choice in a neck wood,but I will be doing a birdseye neck at the same time, so I can compare the two different maples and just incase the red maple is too flimsy. What would be the best to help make it strong and stable while bringing out the best in figuring. I will probably go for an ebony fretboard and a walnut or sapele stripe. If anyone has any other suggestions let me know. This isn't set in stone if you have a better idea for fretboards or skunk stripes put them down. Thanks for your time and input. Jason
