Hey guys, im new here and i had a question for you guys that i cant seem to find the answer to anywhere. I think maybe as luthiers there must be SOMEONE who knows the answer. Does anyone know why most bass necks are made out of maple? i know that not ALL necks are made of it but why is it such a preference. Does anyone have a bass that they really love the tone and has a neck made of something other than maple? Im thinking of making my neck out of east indian rosewood which i know has a great sounding low end. Its been done before but i have never done it myself and i want to know if anyone has any experience with it and how it sounds.
