    I know there are already threads about how people source their wood, but I have a more specific question, and my searches didn't turn up what I was looking for. If this question has already been answered, feel free to direct me to that thread.

    Are there any sellers online who sell neck blanks specifically for neck-through instruments? Or does everyone on here just re-saw a larger piece of stock? Also, I know a lot of people laminate, but my client for this build prefers a single piece of maple.

    I know that I can buy a complete neck from a couple of places like Carvin (and maybe Warmoth?), but do y'all know of anywhere to buy an unfinished blank large enough for neck-through construction?

    Forgive me if this is an ignorant question. I'm still new to building.

    Do you have a specialty hardwood place near you? They should have maple to suit your purposes. It may not be quarter-sawn, but you should be able to find a piece large enough for a neck through bass. That's where I go.
