FSC 100% AAA Honduras Cedar Classical Guitar Neck 22mm
Overview FSC 100% AAA Honduras Cedar Classical Guitar Neck 22mm:
Along with mahogany, cedar necks are still the first choice of the vast majority of guitar builders. The combination of its high resistance and low weight make cedar an ideal wood for the fundamental function expected from a neck: to support the tension exerted by the strings.
All the great guitar makers have used cedar in the necks of their guitars. The list would be endless if we had to mention them one by one. This universal use speaks volumes about the suitability of this wood for use in guitar necks. Its affordable price also makes it an affordable wood that anyone can use. From the beginner to the established builder, you can be sure to find a quality piece without incurring a great expense. Another reason for its popularity.
Honduran cedar is a soft wood with orange-brown tones, golden glints and a characteristic, pleasant smell. It has a very open pore (a filler is a must) and can be worked fantastically well. Although its availability has declined in recent decades, initiatives such as the FSC certification of which these necks are a part ensure a respectful and sustainable supply in the future.
You can choose from three grades in our cedar necks. In the AAA grade you will find necks with a very straight grain, parallel to the longitudinal direction of the neck most of the time. Cut at 90° or with little variation. No noticeable defects, uniform color and low weight. Stiff and stable, they will undoubtedly offer an excellent result.
