Hey guys, I was thinking lately about making a bass with a neck-through, the neck being birch - maybe with a harder (chestnut, padauk) center-strip. I cut some beautiful straight birch today (I know about drying time and all, that's not part of the question) and I feel like I could use it. Birch is one of the hardest woods on my island (Newfoundland.. we don't have much). Anybody have a birch neck? If not, do you think that - with proper support - one would work?
