so i'm planning on building an explorer and i wondered how much wood i need for the neck. i looked at my other guitars and one has a neck made from a single block of wood and one has multiple sheets of wood glued togheter.

is one of the methods better than the other one?

i'm gonna use mahogany, and think it would be easier to use the sheet method since i'm gonna have to glue on pieces on the side for the bended headstock anyways. that way i can order like on plank and chop it up to the lenghts i need.
