All Ebony Neck

Recommended Posts

I was working on a 8 string ebony neck thru and I can tell you this much, the stuff is massivly heavy! (my blank weighed in at just under 18 pounds) when I get a chance Im going to be restarting that guitar but with a maple/ebony lam, to save weight and because I think it will sound better as ebony is very bright.

Honestly, given rosewoods are already pushing the weight limit a little, all-ebony necks seem like a pretty, but idiotically heavy option.

Y'know, unless you're Boaz Elkyam, and make weird, crazy-lookin acoustic classical guitars with partially hollowed ebony necks to bring the weight down. No real details on how he did it, though..

For me it would be too much heavy and expensive; oh yeah a very bright neck I believe more than maple. And consider it isn't easy to work with ebony... and I'm thinking at truss rod channel, shaping and sanding. It will be hard!!!
