i'm building a costum guitar and i'm thinking of using mahogany body and maple neck, and my teacher says he never saw that combination before only the opposite, so what do you say?
#2
when you say neck do you mean neck or fretboard ?
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

Mahogany body and maple neck is much more common than the reverse, infact I've never seen the reverse.

i like it. maple is stronger than mahogany if i'm not mistaken so it'll be less prone to warping.

Actually mahogany's a more stable wood and less prone to warping but maple is stronger. Both are fine for necks though.

sapele works well too... it's 2x as hard as mahogany
