Neck blank, Birdseye Maple, B grade, 30" long x 4" wide x 7/8" thick, flatsawn, tempered
Birdseye Maple has the same strength and hardness of Rock or Eastern Maple which is typically used for Fender-style necks but the Birdseye figure adds rarity and an exotic character that is essential to most custom instruments.
“Tempered”, “Roasted”, “baked” or "cooked" woods are exposed to temperatures of 350° to 425° Fahrenheit (about 180°-220° Celsius). They are cooked in a vacuum chamber so that there is no flame or burning. The process is called torrefaction. There are a number of positive results with tempered wood including a darker color, greater stability, feel, and tone.
The grading on Birdseye Maple necks has more to do with the number of birdseyes than anything else. In the lower grades, there may be small defects or blemishes, but the grading is mainly based on “figure”.
