    I am building a bass and I want a 6 string Goncalo Alves neck with a macassar ebony fretboard in 35" scale. I tried Warmoth and the only 6'ers they have are the "gecko" necks, which don't come in my wood selections. Plus I don't really dig the gecko inlay... Does anybody know another source to find what I need?


    Also, does anyone know the tone of Spalted maple? I haven't been able to locate any descriptions. Is it just the same as regular maple?
    Thanks!

    I can't say for sure but i think a custom luthier would be able to build you just a neck for a price-conklin? DP? a local guy maybe. Those would be the best bet to me. good luck
