Please say why you voted for your particular wood of choice... notice that these woods are the cheapest configurations that do not require a finish, so I don't wish to hear about any other woods in this post.
Nah, you've got this wrong - none of these neck woods should ever get an IR fretboard - Wenge goes all-wenge or gets ebony, Padouk same thing. Purpleheart - same thing I guess. Goncalo should be all-goncalo but I could see pao ferro or again, ebony. Exotic means exotic.
What is it, like $20 more or something? Skip a few Venti Lattes with caramel sauce or whatever. :icon_scratch:
