I'm currently deciding on specs for a custom 8 string. I'm pretty much set on most of it but I'm not sure on my choice of neck woods.
I'd like to go with a 5 piece Maple/Purpleheart/Maple/Purpleheart/Maple. I'm not sure if this would be stable enough with an oil finish. Anyone have experience that might be useful here?
I would imagine that, if you've got mostly maple, it should be fine.
