What is a roasted maple neck?
"Roasted, Baked, Torrefied and Caramelised maple are all words you may have heard associated with guitar necks. These words all describe maple wood that has undergone the same thermal treatment process. In simple terms, the process involves heating the wood to remove any moisture, oils and sugar, creating a more stable structure. As a result, the wood is much less vulnerable to temperature and humidity changes, as well as other improvements that benefit guitar players.
This process is achieved by thermally treating the wood in a roasting kiln. The temperature of which is controlled very carefully to slowly heat the wood and remove any moisture and impurities. This kiln is kept completely oxygen-free so that the wood does not combust, very similar to how charcoal is made. As you may have guessed, this is where the words “Roasted” and “Baked” originate from."
