Stratabond Laminated Hardwoods are manufactured by Rutland Plywood in Vermont, USA and are designed for top performance while offering flexibility in design. At the heart of Stratabond is a proprietary lamination process that creates an unusually powerful bond; a bond that makes for endurance and beauty in finished products. We selected this state-of-the-art engineered hardwood for our guitar necks because it yields uncommon strength and rigidity across ever changing environmental conditions. The Stratabond wood is perfect for guitar necks as regular necks can be susceptible to expansion and contraction due to varying humidity levels. The FG-500’s Stratabond birch neck eliminates any worries of twisting or cracking and will provide very consistent performance for years to come.
