Considered to be among the highest of the grades we offer, these neck blanks are intensely figured and very aesthetically appealing.
The use of maple provides a low stiffness to weight ratio, which makes an exceptional material for use in creating a neck that can withstand a considerable range of string tensions.
Since most lumber has a natural tendency to undergo dimensional changes in different environments, the process of torrefaction (also known as thermal modification or roasting) significantly reduces its sensitivity to different temperatures and humidity levels. By roasting a neck blank, one can expect to have long-term dimensional stability when compared to other conventional methods.
