Thoughts on a neck for this White Korina LP

This lovely item is in the showcase.  I'm tempted by this body for my first Warmoth build once all my ebay transactions complete.

Its a White Korina body & Top. 

From what I read in the Warmoth wood descriptions, its tonally the same as Black Korina.  Naturally I want to go with an exotic no-finish-needed neck. 

Wenge is a popular one for Korina bodies on this page.  Its stiff, has strong mids and warm lows.  Open Grain for less surface drag on the thumb

Bubinga looks like a simaler shade of brown to my eyes.  It appears to come in at the same place in the "Tone-O-Meter".  And while the woods description is less specific on its tonal attributes, it looks like an attractive match for a White Korina body like this.

I figure Kingwood or Pau Ferro for a fingerboard.  But its all "fantasy build" so far. 

Thoughts?

I'd say white korina neck with a nice ziricote or pau ferro fretboard would be a proper fit.... :party07: :party07:

Meh, kinda plain...

This would look good, nice grain pattern on fretboad and a touch of flame in the neck to go with the touch of flame in the body...

Come on. Ziricote. Look. Awesome.

Edit: Before anyone says anything - because someone is bound to - I know this is a bass neck, I know this is nothing like the neck Vol. Knob is looking for. Except for the ziricote fingerboard. Which he should purchase for that nice body.

Oh I agree with you 100% nathan, I have 2 necks with ziricote boards and absolutely love 'em. And I've always been a maple person as far as necks and fretboards go...

I'm waffling  back and forth between this body or having an LPS made with a Mahogony body and Padouk top.  But either way, I'm liking the Wenge and Ziricote more and more as I research here and see what everyone is doing.  I really like the idea of an unfinished neck. 

And there will be no dots or fret markers on the face.  Side yes, face no.

A bidding war erpupted on one of the guitars I have on ebay, so I'll succumb to my Unique Choice temptations and not break the bank.  But alas, the Ziricote board that was beconing me yesterday is gone  :sad1:
