Spanish Cedar neck blank, 2nd grade, 35" x 3" x 7/8"
A 35" neck generally allows you to produce your neck and heel from the same stock which prevents issues with colo, /grain mismatch.
The traditional choice for classical guitars, Spanish Cedar is also in favor among steel string builders, in fact many modern Martin necks have been made from it.
Second grade necks and heels may have one of the following: small knots or pinholes that will not affect the integrity of the neck; they may be off quarter as much as 50% (45°); the grain may not be perfectly straight; there might be unevenness of color.
The longer a neck blank is, the more difficult it becomes to maintain straight grain along the entire piece. We attempt to maintain straight grain along our 35" necks for at least 24" after which the grain may veer slightly off the board.
We take great care to make sure the wood we ship is well dried and ready to use. The sap secretions you may see on your Spanish Cedar neck blanks are normal in Spanish Cedar and are not a concern. Just scrap them from the surface and wait a few days. Sometimes a second scraping in needed. Once the wood is finished, you will no longer see the sap again.
