Neck wood combination

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by PanteraFan, Jun 24, 2001.


  1. Hey, I was just thinking about neck wood combinations, and I came up with this:

    3 Piece neck, Maple/Wnege/Maple, but with thin purpleheart strips on either side of the wenge.

    I heard that surrounding a wood with purpleheart can 'squash' the sound, but Wenge is supposed to draw the sounds of woods together...so what do you think this type of wood arrangement would add to the sound of a bass?
     
  2. what scale? :)
     
  3. Don't push me....

    ;)
