Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

Which neck is more stable & which will have fewer deadspots?

    I'm thinking about buying a Fender-style neck from an aftermarket dealer, and was wondering which of their neck styles, in your opinion as a luthier, would be the most stable and have the most liklihood of reducing/eliminating dead spots? Virtually all configurations are possible, but I'm primarily interested in a one-piece qrtsawn vs. a two-piece flat sawn vs. a two-piece qtrsawn. Any thoughts?
