Neck Wood

Recommended Posts

which kinde of wood should i use for the neck on a guitar for playing metal?

someon is giveing me some mohogony (enough to do maybe 4 guitars body and neck)so i hav easy acsess to mohogony .will that work good.

Mahogany makes a great neck wood. Gibson uses it on a lot of their guitars. It's a really nice wood to work with, carves easily.

The classic Les Paul tone is a mahogany body with male cap and mahogany neck. SG's are all mahogany, and the Explorers and V's are limba (korina), which is very much like mahogany in weight and tone.

Slightly OT but if someone gave you enough mahogany for 4 bodies and necks you should be thanking them enthusiastically.

I bought enough Mahogany for a bit more than one body and it was almost $80.

You scored big if it was gratis!

what does OT mean :D

he got it a cuple years back when the company he works for had to get rid of it becaus someon who worked there got sick becaus of it and sued them .

so they had to get rid of the mahogony.

ive defenetly got lots of people to thank

my ( only)electric guitar is a yamaha pacifica and it was given to me for free!by a very nice guy.

and my parents gave me $50 to help buy my amp (not to mintion providing food and a house)
