Here we have a stock of neck blanks for 1 and 2 piece guitars and basses. All blanks are listed with sizes and come planed and drum sanded ready for you to machine.

BIRDS EYE MAPLE

Birdseye maple is a very attractive hardwood with the same stability as in plain maple. Looks stunning under a clear gloss finish with real depth to figure.

MAPLE

With great sustain strength and stability this is the most poplar Fender style go to neck wood. We can stock flat and quarter sawn when available.

SAPLE

Most people consider this a Mahogany, however that isn't quite true. It does have Mahogany like properties in both appearance and tonality. Whilst generally straight grained, it can be found with the rare pommele style figuring, which somewhat resembles a quilted appearance.

WALNUT

This tone wood is very nice under a clear or tinted finish . Would fall somewhere in the middle in tone and hardness of Mahogany and Maple.

WENGE

Very similar to walnut in tone with a distinctive dark colour and more open grain. Looks and feels good with an oiled finish.
