    Building laminate necks

    On my Les Paul build, I've made a neck that I'm not very happy with as it has come out pretty messy in general, with the whole thing being too thin, the laminate parts being lop sided and only the central part being quarter sawn. I'm planning on making a replacement neck, but this time 3 piece, maybe with veneer as I think for a first laminate neck, 5pc was a bit ambitious.
    I'm intending on buying a new quartersawn blank, but then is it still worth chopping up and gluing back together again to make it a 3 piece?
