    After two with cracked neck pockets I've got a choice between two good ones and can make a choice bases purely on aesthetics - between the neck with the offset figuring or the plain neck...

  4. #2 … the fret board looks flawless.
    Cheers, Barrie.

    I would take #2 #1 - the high E string is too close to the edge of the fretboard ?

    Eyeball the neck,, take the true'st of the two.. (no curve of the fretboard left or right)..
    Edit: ooh!.. one looks quarter sawn (straight grain),, grab it!..
    What are you listening too.. Alien abduction for guitars?..

    The music is “The Gloaming Forge”:

    What is “quarter sawn”?

    Even a flat sawn log will produce a limited amount of straight or quarter sawn type grain.. As Kenneth said,, a preferred grain for stability,, but also uniform looks.. The tighter the grain the better.. #2 looks pretty tight.. :D
