good info about the differences in secondary woods. any idea on how ash sounds?

fyi, you only need stock to be 7/8” thick to use it as a neck. i know that sounds too thin, but it works out. the trick is in cutting the angle for the headstock.

i’m in lafayette, indiana. the tools i have (reamer and fretboard files) would fit in a small box, i could mail them if you want. if you’d rather purchase your own set, check out grizzly. that’s where i bought these, they have a lot good stuff for luthiers besides just the guitar kits.
