Wenge is extremely strong.
Cool. That's what I suspected.
Wood floats because it's less dense than water, titanium is not.
Exactly. So titanium is heavier than the wood it replaces. This may be a bad thing in terms of balance.
I always saw KTS as an expensive marketing campaign. They only used it in expensive guitars IMO as a way of justifying the expense on the guitars, by using something that was, expensive. Stupid cyclic argument IMO.
Certainly a possibility.
Comparing a 3250 against 652 [same shallow necks], it's possible the KTS is there to stiffen necks that are subject to trem abuse. Maybe...
What we're talking about is, do I have to make a truss rod adjustment more often or not? It's not like you were never going to have to make an adjustment. If you play a guitar you should absolutely know how to keep it playable, and that means knowing how to make a truss adjustment.
Ok. Some people might argue that one, but it's a fair view-point.
OTOH, on these shallow 17/19 necks [652, 3250, etc] they get closer to floating under normal use [ie moving as you tune], compared to deeper necks. So stiffening via KTS maybe makes sense.
That aside, if wenge gives comparable stiffening, with less weight and (maybe) better tone, that seems like a positive result. Cool.
