A solid ebony neck? I dont see why not, laminate it with some maple and that'll look sweeet!

Ebony And rosewood aren't used for necks because they're pretty heavy woods
and its expensive to find big pieces of it like that for necks or bodies.

Ya well when i wrestle/play with my dog he sometimes jumps on my back and starts humping me. But should he be doing this if he is neutered?

yeah weight, i can imaging being a problem, but the piece i have does feel all that heavy really, its lighter than the body blank, plus using mahogany for the headstock might lighten it up abit.

ive managed to find a few sources and whatnot on this, and many of them say that ebony is prone to warping during changes in climate. i mean i dont want to make the neck for the hell of it becuase its an awful lot of nice ebony, i will make it if its possible, other than that i think ill go with just using it as a skunk stripe.
