what would be a good wood for a guitar neck that cheaper then maple etc..but just as good or better?

I'd stick to either maple mahogany or walnut unless you want to go with exotic wood which would cost a lot more. A neck worth of any of those shouldn't be too expensive.
Nice birch, I've got a 3 or 4 pieces of flamed birch there not too big maybe I could get some tops for neck through wings out of them.

is pine and other woods u get at lows to soft?

ill be making my own neck from scratch soon and its my frist....

so i not sure if i should just get some cheap wood and make it or get the proper stuff and and just see what happens..any advice would be very helpfull..
i am a handy person with wood. just experinced with detailed structure like a guitar neck.

i know i should have just made a new thread. but i didnt think it was important enough.. hope im not stepping on anyones toes..

sorry lp

Pine is way too soft for a neck.

Stick to maple, mahogany, walnut, all of the woods that are tried and true.

You can make bodies out of just about anything though. Almost.

hey Roman, your piece is more figured, and its about 90% white wood, no heartwood, so you should get a nice even stain/color on it.

lol @ the sister comments, you guys are going to get me in trouble with the law so shut it!

im charging roman 65 for a bookmatched top? his piece is the best though, this **** was not cheap for me.

ask your sister how far shes willing to travel, not only am i a poon-magnet, but im lazy.


hahahahahahaa

Actually, to be honest, I don't mind a big color difference...and dont worry man, she's legal XD...although that is prostitution, so you're right. Any police officers or law enforcement people: I am not selling my sister for wood!
Well, you're about 30 iles away from Alexandria you said, right? I think she said she'd be willing to go that far. I'll call you tomorrow to let you know conclusively.

EDIT: I want a darker red, kinda like the wine red Les Pauls...so if I used Colortone cherry lacquer on white wood, would that do the trick? Or would it have to be darker?

Alrighty...unfortunately for you horny guitarists, I have no good pics of her, but lets just say she dressed up as Mystique from the Xmen movie, complete with the no clothes element and no one complained (except me, because no one complained...a bit uncomfortable for me)
But yes, her boyfriend will be with her.
Ok, I'll give her your number when she leaves so she can call you so you guys can coordinate it together. Her name is Alisa.
