Question on Neck Wood
I have two ukes in process, both are koa, one with koa soundboard and one with sitka spuce soundboard. The material I have on hand that is a size that would work for necks are:
Hemlock - never heard of anyone using it but it is light and strong and has a nice ring to it. I can always darken it with a stain.
Cocobolo - Lovely but very heavy - would it overbalance the uke?
or should I just buy some cedar?
Let me know what you think, and thank you in advance for your replies.
