i may have found a good deal on a walnut neck blank, and was thinking of using that for the five piece neck build i mentioned earlier, or maybe even to just pair it with an ebony fretboard.

but i was worried about the discoloration. i have not seen that in walnut before. is that normal?
thought so

thanks for the input. well, what would you recommend then on a mahogany strat?

i revised my plan to mahogany body, walnut neck, ebony fingerboard. and railbuckers. sound good to you? or should i start looking towards a different kind of neck wood?
