so i'm looking into buying some wood. what is a good moisture content for some really hard wood? also, is there a certain age a wood needs to be before you can use it. just trying not to get some wood that isn't done yet and would warp, twist, crack. i was going for cheap, strong, stiff and heavy, like ipe fretboard and jotoba - something - jatoba neck. are different woods different also in how long or to what % they need dried? i actually have a different thread going about the above named woods. but i thought i should make a another just about moisture content since i can't find one.
