Hi all, I was looking through Alembic's featured custom archives and happened upon a twelve string guitar w/ an Ebony neck and purpleheart laminates: http://www.alembic.com/info/FC_dt12string.html I've never seen anything like this (perhaps 'cause I'm a total newb) and a search of these forums yielded only discussions regarding ebony fretboards, rather than the entire neck being made of ebony. I was wondering what would be the pros and cons of having such a neck on a bass. Would it be unbearably heavy? Unbalanced i.e. prone to neck dive? How would the sound be affected? I bet it would cost an arm and a leg too. Your thoughts would be appreciated - Thanks.
