I can tell you one thing for sure, I have just found my sub-1000 category neck builder for the consortium. This guy is amazing, and he charges almost nothing. I guess he is trying to establish a rep/street cred.

The builder called it Chocolate Zebrawood, but I am fairly certain that is not the actual wood species. It seems to be similar to Rosewood in weight, density, and porosity. I honestly have no clue what the actual wood is, but I would definitely do more necks made from the same stuff. I am loading it with soaked-in Bore oil, then I'll watch it for a few weeks, and decide if it needs something more substantial, treatmentwise, for long-term durability. It feels awesome, and I would put it somewhere between Rosewood and Ebony in overall feel when gripping it.

Here are some shots in better light before the headstock was carved, and the frets installed:

Nice! That looks awesome.

Another great 'affordable' neck builder is Doug at Soulmate Guitars, although he gets pretty busy pretty quick these days and is not afraid to stop taking orders to work on a backlog.
