Estimated dimensions for the archtop guitar neck (700x100x25 mm)
Archtop guitar necks have been traditionally made from hard curly maple. This is a very tough wood, and is preferred for this application due to the high tension. However, other woods are used for necks, such as mahogany, which is much more stable wood. It is less stiff than hard maple, but this problem can be fixed with a slightly greater tension in the truss rod nut. Archtop guitar necks normally must have some internal reinforcement.
In Maderas Barber we can offer you different woods for the neck, such us Maple, Honduras Cedar, Mahogany , Sycamore or Padouk.
