    Default Roasted Birdseye Maple

    So you take a neck blank and roast it in a kiln while removing the oxygen and you get this incredible color. I'm adding this as an upgrade option to my necks. Just finished this one and rubbed it out with oil. No stains or tints, just oil.

    I need to get with you on something like that.
    Can you do that with the new style Wolf headstock?

    Well, if it weren't protected by Ed and Fender I'd say yes, but I don't want that heat. Any unprotected headstock I'll do, or leave the headstock with a little work for you to complete the shape and I can do it.

    This is a friends 93 that I made my template from. I think the coloring on my neck is similar to his naturally aged neck.

    I have two EBMM guitars an AL HH and Roller with RM necks and they are insane though it was a package offered in August with the RM and a finish called Black Sugar which is black that when it hits the light has all gold sparkles which is cool but I would of liked to of picked out my own finish, it was also a $400 upcharge on each ax though luckily one of my best friends is my dealer lol.

    I know EB did not do the roasting and had them sent out and done by someone else. Kyle I see you did an EVH so I am wondering why EB did not include any guitars with Floyds, any feedback on that. Also what is the exact process, are they chemically treated? Good to know you are doing these and I will pass the word around. I know they say it is supposed to make the necks more stable which to me is a crock of shit as IMPO they are just a nice cosmetic touch but would like to hear a good in-depth on it all from someone who knows.

    The Roasting is done exactly how it sounds... by roasting it. It's done in a kiln before the neck is cut and very controlled so there's no scortching. As far as stabilizing the neck the only thing I can think that it would do is because the moisture content is at 0 and then the blank is allowed to cool and reacclimate somewhat it's as warped or bowed as it will ever get. It's planed and carved at that point so "maybe" it has no tendency to warp any more.

    ...at least that makes sense to me.

    As far as doing this particular neck, I'd have to leave the headstock slightly incomplete do to the EB trademarks, but as always not more than a customer could modify/complete quickly if desired.

    Off topic, but I just chambered a neck for the first time today. Pretty cool!

    Cool, but may I ask, why? I would imagine any minor tone improvements would be negated by the loss of neck strength and stability right? Just curious.

    It's lighter and it's also a replica of Billy Gibbons' Super Model. It's got a chambered neck as well as the body.

    Love the look of "roasted" necks, both EBMM's and yours.

    I do believe they apply a thin sealer coat of lacquer/whatever to theirs, though.

    Yes Majestic the EB Roasted necks have a clearcoat finish, Kyle that chambered neck cameout great though I also had no idea behind the reason for it, I can see doing a body but what could a neck take off weight wise a few ounces, or does it have a different feel to it.

    In my earlier post I asked why EB would not do any roasted necks on guitars with Floyds as I see you did an EVH, is there some risk to cracking ? As a lot of guys were kind of pissed they ommited doing them.
