I was wondering, most people build necks as a three peice

Is it okay to make a two peice neck or would it be unstable (for things like the truss rod)

or how hard is it to get a one peice not to warp, and the wood would be maple?

I believe that kyle (LP Addict) was fond of making 2 peice necks....


so definitely possible.

okay, then if I went with a 1 peice neck, how hard is it to get it not to warp, I haven't made any guitars or even really worked with wood and the one guitar I have is crappy. I have my guitars in my room, which is a basement, and is quite humid, so that has always been a worry.

just make it a 2-piece then. all you have to do is cut the neck blank in half on a table saw and maybe plane the edges that you cut. my peavey's neck is 2-pice block construction and it looks cooler than 3-piece imho.

Why would you make it a one piece if you could make it a 3 piece?


Depending on the techniques and materials it would be extremely easy to make a one piece neck stable, decent dry stable quarter sawn maple, truss rod, carbon fibre rods either side, then yeah it will probably be stable.
