Neck wood

I am thinking about buying a custom guitar body and neck from Christopher Woods custom guitars. I've selected my body wood, but then there's the neck wood. I want a 3-piece. There's 3 piece maple and bubinga and maple and purpleheart. Which is a better tone wood?

Re: Neck wood

Well, the body is mahogany. I'm trying to get a tone that's kind of a cross between a JEM and a metal style guitar. So, I'm going for a deeper tone.

Re: Neck wood

Get a solid ebony neck, it would play so slick and fast and have a really sweet tone for sure.
