I knew qs made necks strong and that's not bad when you have five strings pulling on the neck. But I didn't know what it meant, so I read up on the different milling techniques.

I opted for a quartersawn fretboard and core wood, even if the fb is just a cosmetic option. Below is a pick of the qs G&L fretboard; the second pic--qs G&L on the left; plain sawn Precision on the right.

I'm surmising by looking at the grain on the back of the QS neck, that it is more rigid, and resists the pull of the strings... much like a 2x4 flexes if laid down on it's wide side, but standing it up on its short side, there's almost no flex... Amirite? :)
