    So, Im moving forward on my plans for building my 5ver this summer and Im addressing the issue of my neck. So can someone explain to me if there is a huge difference between say a 1pc maple neck and a 3pc. either way my neck will have graphite rods and a truss rod. thanks as always:D
     
  2. 3pc. is more stable over 1pc......and if you use 2 diffrent woods then it just looks plain cool!

    Yes a 3 piece should be more stable if the grain alternates. And why do you think you need carbon fiber rods in a 5 string? Just use good strong wood and you'll hardly have to touch the truss rod without them. :) A good truss rod can do any adjustment and stabilizing you might need.
    Good Luck,
    Dirk
