    Anyone using Alaska Yellow Cedar for necks?

    I just used it on a build. Neck has (as always) carbon fiber reinforcement. I choose AYC for this build as the colour matches the colors of the body (spalted tamarind). I then sprayed a unique light blue/black colour on certain areas of the neck to add interest.

    Nut Files - Worth Buying?

    Sweet relief. I like to control everything I can in a build, and I certainly don’t want a neck to bend in an unpredictable way or amount. So I make a super stiff neck, and custom add the exact relief I want to suit the instrument (steel string, classical or uke) A stiff neck also adds sustain...
