I'm having trouble finding out what's different between a 1 piece, 3 piece, 5 piece neck, anyone?

1-piece is made from ONE piece of wood. 3-piece is made with THREE pieces of wood, etc...

Look at the back of an Ibanez Prestige 5-piece neck. See those little dark lines? They're not racing stripes...
yeah i understand that, i mean what's the advantages / disadvantages ?

sorry i was a bit vague =p it's late
Well a laminate neck (3 or 5 or more peices) is stronger than a 1 peice neck, so it is less prone to warping and can be made thinner, see Ibanez necks for thinness.

A lot of them also look nicer.
