I'm starting an electric guitar this week in woodshop and was wondering how well birch serves as a neck since I don't want to go out and buy maple. Apparently they're really similar so I'd assume it would be fine. It'll have a rosewood fretboard if that matters to anyone.
Next time, use the ultimate wood thread please.

However, i have never heard of a birch neck. However if there similar in strength to maple (according to you, i didn't look), then it should be ok, but you would be wise to make it a 3 piece neck for strength reasons.

Reported for the close.
