Blackdog Posted March 2, 2009 Report Share Posted March 2, 2009 I'm already working in defining a future build, but I'm undecided about the neck. The guitar is a LP-ish design similar to my Paula (see sig below), honduras mahogany back and a thick, carved flame maple top. It's going to be heavily chambered or even hollow. The fingerboard will be brazilian RW, could have a flame maple binding or rosewood binding with a maple accent, depending on the neck wood. 25" scale, 22 frets, twin humbuckers. So far reasonably traditional. Now for the neck, I could make a one piece neck out of any of the following: Honduras mahogany Indian rosewood Flame maple Korina Wengé Walnut Padauk ...or, of course, a laminated neck out of two or more of those. I already have experience in carving the first four, the rest are new to me. Originally it was going to be one-piece Indian RW, but now I'm more inclined to make it 3-piece: Indian RW sides and flame maple center. But there are so many possibilities... So tell me, what would you choose and why ?? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
