Tom Anderson is now prototyping guitars with bamboo necks. Mostly due to mahogany and rosewood becoming harder to get for necks. According to Anderson is sounds similar to mahogany but with more high end. It will be interesting to see if more makers follow suit and start experimenting with different woods.
