Whether you are interested in a new guitar piece or simply want a creative upgrade on your current model, consider purchasing or building a maple guitar neck for you collection pieces or instruments. Maple is a popular wood for guitar enthusiasts, as they enjoy the feel of the wood both polished and unpolished. The parts are fairly easy to construct on your own, requiring only a few lengths of wood and a few tools, but if you do not have the time or desire for construction of neck pieces, there are plenty of options on the music market that run the gamut of highly designed and simple, as well as expensive and intricate or cheap and unadorned. Whichever you decide, consider your options for maple guitar necks and prepare your collection for a new look and feel!
Craftsmen or hobbyists may prefer to use their own hands and tools to add to their collection, and building a Birdseye maple guitar neck is not a difficult task. Indeed, the most complex part of construction is choosing which variant of wood you would like — a thicker set gives stronger sound but less resonance, while a thinner plank has weaker sound but more variance in tone and pitches. Maple planks are available at most home improvement stores — such as Home Depot, Lowe’s, or Ace Hardware — and is a relatively inexpensive type of building material, unlike oak or cherry. To build the neck piece, simply select the length needed, glue together the pieces and give time for the glue to dry, file grooves for the frets (no deeper than one millimeter), and sand or polish as desired.
If you do not have the time or desire to build a piece, either for an acoustic or electric guitar maple neck, there are plenty of custom options on the music market. Craftsmen all over the country create their own intricate designs and either sells them individually on websites, or wholesale through music stores, supply depots, and instrument repair shops. The cost of custom neck pieces may venture from very low to very high. Popular designs, such as the flame maple guitar neck with bright orange lighting, can be had for very cheap, perhaps as low as twenty dollars. On the other hand, the rarer or more complex designs can cost as much as thousands of dollars, if not more. If you are interested in maple-built guitar necks, look into craft stores or individual manufacturers for your preferred design.
