Not sure if this belongs in this forum, but it was the best find I could find at a glance. I am having a neck made for my guitar, as the current one took a beating from the very dry winter we just had here in Denmark. I can't make my own neck, and this guy looks like he knows what he's doing. It's going to be a laminate neck with either of these two options: 1. 5-piece roasted maple neck with regular maple stripes (Roasted maple/maple/roasted maple/maple/roasted maple) and roasted maple fretboard 2. 5-piece maple neck with roasted maple stripes (maple/roasted maple/maple/roasted maple/maple) and maple fretboard Now some of my concerns are fretsprout, as that's pretty comming with the changing of the seasons here - would the option with the roasted maple be the better choice here? As far as I can read the roasting process makes it less prone to shrinking. Also, carbon fiber reinforcement rods come standard in these things, but between the 5-pice laminate and roasted maple, is it going to be stable enough without the reinforcement? Will the neck be too stiff with them in - is that even a thing? It's going to be used in either drop d or c, so no weird tunings or really heavy gauges - yet. Thanks for any feedback or thoughts!
