I thought I would try segmenting some of the aspects of a forum guitar to see if we might converge on something in little steps. First up the woods for the neck. A while ago I wrote up some of my experiences with different neck woods - highly subjective and personal, but I'll share a link to them.
In the poll I deliberately left out some exotics like Braz and perny because I think it pushes the price to high, but feel free to write in alternatives I left out. In fact, I propose to use the poll as an easily visible trend marker, but I will periodically tally a top 3 write in list. I suggest writing in up to 3 favourites that you would consider acceptable.
I've used a naming convention of neck wood - fingerboard wood
