Flammed maple neck versus Slab maple

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by buro2k4, Nov 12, 2004.

  1. So I'm wondering if there are any advantages to a flammed maple neck over a standard slab maple. I currently have a flammed maple neck, and am ordering a second bass. I want it to play just as well as my current one, but I'm just trying to justify the extra $ on a feature that might not make a difference?

    any help would be great, thanks

  2. Flamed maple looks cooler.

    That's aboot it.
  3. Yeah, pretty much. And I believe that figured woods aren't quite as stable as their non-figured brethren.
