I have to local lumber yards that I can order neck and fretboard blanks fromone of them in Burlington, ON called Exotic Woods and the other one in Stouffiville, ON called Century Mill. The Exotic Woods one has much better selection of woods and they actually cater to musical instrument makers - they offer body, fretboard, and neck blanks, however they are quite expensive. The Century Mill yard doesn't offer pre-made neck/body/freatboard blanks, but you can custom order them. This is what I'm planning to do, but I have a few questions on wood species and blanks' sizes I should order. Here are their choices for domestic and foreign hardwoods: http://centurymill.com/site/domestic-hardwood-1/ http://centurymill.com/site/foreign-hardwoods-1/ Which ones of those are well suited for neck and fretaboard blanks? I'm planning to build bolt-on necks only - mainly tele and strat, but I want to try some shredder-type necks too ibanez/jackson/bc rich. What are the minimum size neck blank dimensions that I should order, which will work for tele and start necks, and what about for other necks that have tilted or bigger headstocks?
