    yes thats right its Purple heart, and it is laid up in the laminations of the neck, with the other timbers.
    I like laminated necks they are way stronger than single piece necks, and it lets you orient the grain for maximum strength,
    and I reckon they look good..

    Does your purple heart and bloodwood generally oxidize and change color? I've seen some that does, and some that doesn't.

    The stuff I have seems very stable,, that purple heart acoustic I built last year is still as bright as ever..
    in fact the weird thing with the purple heart I have, is that when I open up a plank, its sort of reddish brownish not too good looking at all, and after about 4 hours it gets really purple..

    so its a good thing.. gets more purple as it oxidises..

    weird huh?

    That's great! I find this stuff fascinating. There is a whole host of brightly colored woods that you don't see in guitar building a whole lot. I suppose it is much easier to dye maple.
