    Here's a long shot - can anyone here build me a neck with a certain style?
    Here's what I'm looking for:
    Tele neck (doesn't have to be a Tele headstock)
    Shaft wood: Ribbon/figured Mahogany
    Fretboard wood: highly flamed maple
    22 frets, Medium C neck profile, compound radius a plus but not necessary, 1 11/16" nut width, would need frets installed - 6150 Stainless steel
    Not an option from Warmoth, and I have yet to hear back from Musikraft, so I figured I'd ask here, if that's okay.
    Let me know - want it to match a body I'm working on.
    Thanks!

    Interestingly I tried the Warmoth wizzard and they would not put a flamed maple f/b on a mahogany shaft. Wonder what the reason is?

    I was going to say Musikraft, those options aren't select able on their site?

    You don’t need stainless steel, look at the Evo Gold. It’s hardness falls between nickel and SS frets. Musikraft has the option for $50 up charge. I have Evo gold on my Knaggs and a Musikraft neck. It’s just as slick and smooth as the SS.
    My Knaggs is three years old and has many many hours of playing time. No fret wear.

    You can get a lot of options at Warmoth that aren’t in the builder if you call or send an e-mail. I have a killer flamed mahogany neck with a birdseye maple fretboard that came from the Warmoth showcase. Worth sending an e-mail or making a phone call anyway.

    Ok I'll look into them. A brief look at their website didn't mention flamed maple as a fretboard option specifically, but maybe they can still do it.

    Nice neck. Yeah I saw one with Birdseye on Mahogany as well, in the showcase - Warmoth said "Showcase only" when I asked

    Yeah I saw the EVO on Musikraft and actually mentioned that in my email to Musikraft since it would go well with the gold hardware I'm going to use for this guitar.

    It looks great on both Maple and Rosewood.
    I highly recommend the EVO, I’ve been building guitars for some time now and just love it.
    I didn’t know what it was until I got the Knaggs, if Joe Knaggs uses it, it’s good.
    Btw I think Musikraft updated their website recently, I emailed them ten days ago and haven’t heard back. They’re usually good with that.
    Also, I think Musikraft makes the best necks, I’d go with it.
