well im looking to start my neck through build soon. but before i order any of my wood i obviosly need to know what im gettin. well i cant figure out what to use for the sides, so suggestions would be nice, i have a hard maple neck and theres going to be a quilted maple top. so i want sides that will help even out the tone or does it not even matter. lastly has to stain well.
thats auctlly what i was thinking but ive never used it myself so i wasnt sure. thanks!
yeah mahogany will help even out the bright tone of maple. You should a laminate neck with different coulours. 5 piece maple and walnut is great, just as one suggestion.
