Coaltone roasted maple guitar neck
Coaltone has been working and testing roasted wood for their neck for the last 6 years. They were among the first to experiment with that process for guitar neck. Now they release their amazing necks for upgrading your typical strat or tele. You'll see instantly an improvement in sustain, tone and feel. It basically doesn't move, it is really stable because the humidity is set at around 4%. They are lot of fun to play kind of like a vintage neck. Experiment the Coaltone experience.
Our roasted maple neck go thru a special kiln drying process which involves heating the wood to over 300 degrees in a special kiln, removing the moisture from the wood. This process vulcanizes the wood making it stronger, yet lighter in weight. The big advantage is that after going under this process, the wood becomes much less susceptible to moisture and climate changes, resulting in a more stable, predictable piece of wood. This is great for guitar neck especially, and will result in less need for adjustments between seasons and different weather conditions. An extra added bonus from this process is while stabilizing figured maple, that is typically not so stable, it also greatly enhances the color and figuring in the wood. The finished product is usually stunning, has improved tone and increased sustain!
It come with 4 Heli coil screws. The neck become tighter with the body, resulting in more sustain.
