Roasted Maple Necks

Performance benefits of a thermally modified microstructure:
  • Adds dimensional stability and resistance to temperature and humidity changes
  • Increases resistance to warping
  • Reduces density while maintaining stiffness for a lighter neck with sufficient strength
  • Yields a microstructure similar to naturally aged woods with lower moisture content
  • More resonance and less damping
  • Eliminates the need for hazardous chemical treatments
  • Vibrational testing indicates that roasted maple exhibits clearer tone with a stronger fundamental than untreated maple samples
Package includes:
  • Roasted figured neck
  • Black Sugar finish
  • Ebony fretboard
  • BFR inlay
* Available on all models except the Classic Series and Floyd Rose equiped guitars
