i saw a semi-finished sg body and neck on ebay that were priced attractively. however, they're maple with a rosewood fingerboard rather than the usual mahogany/rosewood. im concerned that using all maple will sound too bright (?). maybe the electronics should be coupled with 250k pots to mellow it out a bit? any thoughts? anyone built/played an all maple humbucker guitar before?
It is mellow. It's like on humbucker strat copies.
The neck will definatly give the mahogany body a more higher end with that maple neck. It may as well make the mahogany body sound crisper & sharper to a degree.
the body is maple as well as the neck. thats why im wondering if itll be too bright
