I was contemplating a future build based on a piece of raw ash that I have. My plan is to rout the body to shape, chamber it and add a 1/4" thick top made of plate aluminum. (I know I can't rout the aluminum.) Has anyone done this? I was bouncing the idea off a friend and he mentioned that feedback might be a problem since the pickups would be mounted and surrounded by metal. I'm not sure if I'd polish or "brush" the metal. So, opinions on that are requested, too. I think it'd be a pretty neat build. I'd like to see pics of one that's 'in-process' or even finished.
