Report 6K TOW Carbin fiber thread... genius! in The Design Bar Posted 54 minutes ago Just now, Prostheta said: So that's a thing then. Well, CF in a neck is no bad thing. I recall that David Myka did a test many years ago where he made a neck with LOTS of pultruded tubes replacing the wood. The comment was that it was very bright sounding. I wouldn't say that's a bad thing, just a thing to quantify when juggling your parameters. I'm of the opinion that a simple wooden neck can always be better whether through basic lamination of the same wood to achieve a more stable growth ring orientation and symmetry, lamination of different woods and materials to achieve the same and bring together a variety of tonal qualities, or flat out going super tech and dropping in everything....in reasonable balance. Like you've heard other people say, a couple of small reinforcement bars are more than enough. You can easily make a neck too stiff and unresponsive. Strings need to pull in a little bow for fret clearance. Man, you know all this. haha right on, some good fact-lets there (I've heard many complaints about teh sound of carbon fiber, then again flea seems to make an entirely carbon fiber neck sound pretty good so... grain of salt). I have two 5 strings right now... and don't really care for either. they both are solid maple and are under constant strain to maintain the super low action I like. I think I'm probably most of the way there just going with a 7 piece lam w opposing grain and an ebony board... and perhaps I'm jumping the gun thinking that that on it's own won't be enough to get me rock solid stability with a thin profile... but I'd hate to be wrong!
