Hi!

Are laminated necks better or worse than necks made from a single piece of wood? your thoughts please! :)

If you mean multi-piece necks, they are actually more stable than one-piece necks. The usual technique used in multi-piece construction consists of gluing pieces together with opposing grain patterns.

I think it is more work to make laminated necks.
One could question if a laminated neck transfers "tone" better or not vs. a solid neck.
Don't think there is a sure answer, as far as I can tell laminated necks sound excellent, but so do solid necks ...
Not sure if anyone has done any real comparing.

From a builder's perspective, laminating a neck blank can often make wood source & selection much easier & cheaper.
