Two pieces of wood will never sound 100% the same. Get whatever you like.
The roasted maple seemed to have more "weight" behind. It carried the noted better and seemed to resonate a bit better.
I listened without watching, and couldn't detect any difference whatsoever. Nothing.
Sound of roasted neck a bit more compressed. Sound of roasted neck is slightly closer to the sound of the neck with rosewood fretboard in my opinion.
The torrified maple 'roasted' had a chewier low and low mid. The white maple has an upper mid roundness to it, to me it sounds 'thinner'. This was on my lap top speakers 100hzto10,000hz. i am shall now attempt to discern it with my monitors now. Neck wood has always been a thing for me, i hate standard maple neck guitars. Although i love birdseye and torrified and burls etc. not because looks. Because = sound. And for me as a musician, i believe it is horrible that people like to make things out of wood like pens and furniture to be 'fancy' or for appearance only, and things that do not make sounds. Woods are clearly designed for building instruments, because it is a tool as an instrument, it has far more importance.
We’ll I just hope you know that the people or person who said that Warmoth needed to find another rep for their company?those idiots are one of the most shitty things on this earth,”BULLY “ just keep in mind that a person who makes fun or bully’s another human being aren’t worth the time of the person thier putting down,this is addressed from another video about roasted maple necks,so yeah man,don’t feed into that ignorance,evidently they’re pissed off that you likely better than them in some way,although all people like that are short in some aspects of life ,bet on it…great vids man
but it is not the same maple neck getting roasted. :/
It sounds like there's old strings on the regular maple and new strings on the roasted. At least that's what is sounds like. Not sure if it's worth the trouble/money to buy a roasted neck/fretboard. Roasted is supposed to be more durable and less impacted by the weather.
Roasted maple is intriguing.
But you lost me at "more brittle".
The unroasted sounds better over all to me. brighter. the roasted more compressed in the tones
7 months later : still playing this Cabronita with the roasted maple neck and as Aaron so clearly explained, the TONAL difference this roasting might affect is in-consequential to me - it's the feel
and the response I get , the vibrations my hands and body feels PLUS the simple but very important fact : the neck moved not one iota in all this time.
You must have a VERY good hearing - 200 - 400KHz is in the MW radio frequencies 🙂. I think the roasted neck sounded marginally better, and then again 2 standard maple necks
would probably also sound different. But so far I am convinced about roasting.
Thank you - that took a lot of work. I agree with your results. they both sound good.
Rosted maple has slighty more oomph.
Wow I didn’t know that the colour of the nut makes that big difference in sound! …just kidding. If you believe that you ARE the nut! I wish people were more picky choosing their notes than type of screws on their pickguards. But on the other hand this is what makes guitar playing more fun so ladies and gentlemen as far as you know what’s the deal go crazy play with your toys and feed our beloved luthiers so they can come up with more cool stuff for us. That’s the joy of life.
The roasted is more articulate! Thats my pick!
Pure and simply Bluff, theres no difference at all
