The Roasted Maple neck has been heat-treated to increase the wood's stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes.

"Roasted Maple Neck is great!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Quality and tone are great. The neck is impressive. Feels and looks very similar in quality to the neck on my Ibanez AZ24, which cost literally 4x as much as this bass. I've also been able to get a nice variety of tones out of it. Couldn't be happier with what I got. I keep forgetting how inexpensive it was too. Very happy!
