Ok, I am new to all of this and I have a pretty fundamental (4 syllable word for stupid) question. What contributes more to neck stability... multi-laminate construction, or stiffening rods? Is there a real difference? I know companies that typically build Fender-esque designs typically employ either graphite or steel stiffening rods, while other companies use 5-piece multilaminate construction or just use quarter-sawn necks... So what really works, and what is just an advertising gimmick?
