Looking to get a neck for this build- redwood is very soft and will probably be similar to a pine body----what neck wood will give me the best all around tone---

any other thoughts??

I have a Tele I built of red cedar...a very soft but resonant wood.

I paired it with a mahogany neck and it sounds great.
