jay5 Posted February 25, 2004 Report Share Posted February 25, 2004 I am starting mu first project and I need to get my wood for the neck. I will be making a 2 piece (neck and seperate fretboard) neck. I wnt to the local woodworking shop and they had soft maple and hard maple boards, both about the same cost. The sof maple was the color that I see all the neck blanks on stewmac and warmoth. The hard maple was a darker, "dirtier" color. Definately needed a little more planing/jointing. Does anyone know which would make a better neck or at least what the differences are? They were both flatsawn. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
