    How would Zebrawood work as the main wood of a neck-through? I came across a 9 ft. piece of lumber at a local hardwood vendor, and he gave it to me for $10! He said it has been in thier wherehouse for way too long, and wanted to get rid of it. Unfortuantely, I think it's too small to use as a bookmatched top, but could I use it to build a neck?

    Will work, but it is way on the heavy side...Keep your ears on the dead spots!

    Nice work. Control cavity looks great! How heavy was that bass?

    She weighs about 8-9 lbs. I'd say. I'm used to playing a really heavy guitar, so it doesn't seem overly heavy to me.. nowhere near what a Warwick weighs.
