So I stopped by Guitar Center today to get ideas for my second project, and picked up a used EB Axis (wolfgang style) with an unfinished maple neck. It was dirty and grimy with splotches all over it, but it was by far the best neck I played there. What is that - simply unfinished maple? Or is there more to it? And how do I get that feel from a Warmoth neck? Do the splotches hurt the wood or performance?
