Neck out of Leopardwood

Recommended Posts

I'm about to embark on building my 1st neck (having successfully done a Tele-clone & lap steel, figured this was next to try). Since I'm doing this more for enjoyment than anything else, if the project actually works out, its a plus & there's a body in the works to put it on.

Anyways, I have a piece of leopardwood left over from the lap steel - it's about 13/16" thick (same thickness as StewMac sells for electric neck blanks). Altho a bit hard, the wood works very well & looks beautiful.

Any thoughts on its suitability for a neck (probably use Ebony or Rosewood as the fingerboard)??
