Need Help Deciding What Wood For Neck


Recommended Posts

I am using Black Acacia (Australian Blackwood) for the back and sides, Sitka Spruce Bearclaw for the top. I am trying to decide what wood to use for the neck. at first I was thinking of Mahogany but due to the fact that I probably will use a Zibrawood fretboard, I don't think that the Mahogany would blend in. My other thought was to use Curly maple for the neck but I am not sure if these combos will not look good due to most of the woods being light in color. I was wondering what everyone else thought about these combos, and if they had any other suggestions for Neck wood?

don't know man, just trial & error w/ setting all the wood out and looking @ it.. I don't think Zebrawood and Blackwood would mix very well. The neck wood does have effects on the tone, but no where near what the body does.. I'm just more curious as to how it will sound :D

Good Luck!

yea I think that I am not going to use the Zibrawood for the fretboard because of the Inlay that I hope to do. I think I am going to go with mahogany. I will keep you posted Scab on how it sounds....

Sweet dude, i haven't had a chance to experiment w/ other woods (as i basically just started this). But finding out by others is the way I have to go for now :D

Good Luck!
