Johnny Foreigner Posted July 6, 2010 Report Share Posted July 6, 2010 inspired somewhat by RestorationAD's 7-string, I'm contemplating a future build where the focus is very clearly on being as thin and light as possible. I think that will probably mean a basswood body with maple cap, but I'm unsure about what wood to use for the neck. What's the lightest wood (or combination of woods - i'd be interested in a multi-ply also) you think you can 'get away with' for a neck - so it's still strong enough (possibly with double truss rod or TR plus two CF rods). obviously the lighter the neck, the lighter/thinner the body can be without neck dive. it will be 6 string, 25" scale, same basic shape (and same HS shape) as my first build (http://projectguitar.ibforums.com/index.php?showtopic=42864&view=findpost&p=468147) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
