I have a nice piece of maple and a nice piece of walnut - both jointed and planed - to use in building a neck for a Stingray-style body with a Fender neck pocket. My plan is to split the maple (flatsawn) and glue-in a strip of walnut (opposite grain, or quartersawn) ) for stability. I will have more than enough walnut left to use for the fretboard, but do not see walnut often used for this purpose. So, questions: Is there a reason walnut is not typically used for fretboards? If I decide to use the walnut, what do I need to be aware of in terms of potential pitfalls? Thanks.
