I hope I'm not breaking any rules, but I just wanted to clarify for everyone that "Vulcanized Maple" is a unique process innovated by Suhr which is to bake the maple at 700 degrees Fahrenheit. It makes the wood impervious to moisture and the elements. I'm extremely impressed by it.

No, that's cool man. I was wondering about that myself. :)

Actually, Suhr didn't innovate "vulcanized" maple. It's a process their wood supplier uses, both Tom Anderson and John Suhr are building guitars with this neck wood. Anderson calls it "chocolate" maple. By baking the maple at a very high temperature, all the moisture is removed and the maple turns brown in color. This makes the wood extremely stable and less prone to changes in humidity. If you were to take one of these necks and cut it in half, the wood is a dark brown color all the way through, not just on the outside.
