Since I'm waiting to figure out what to do on the neck plans I thought I'd bang out a couple of bodies in the meantime: The first is 8/4 Mahogany with a Black Walnut stripe. My mahogany boards weren't quite wide enough for a 1 or a 2pc body. So I added a Walnut stripe to the middle. This one my be going to a friend of mine who wants to commission a Mahogany body but I'm not sure if he'll like the stripe or not. So I may be doing another with some wider mahogany boards soon. The second body is a laminate starting with 4/4 Mahogany, a 1/4" layer of Wenge, and a 1/4" Black Korina top. Although this body is only 1-1/2" thick its one of the heaviest I've built so far. I really should have chambered it but I thought it'd be lighter than it ended up: The Wenge is 3 non-bookmatched boards so it wouldn't really have made a matched top. I got it cheap because I specifically asked for offcuts/scraps. If its not too cold I'm gonna try to get these on the router table tomorrow and decide what pickups/controls/bridges I want to use. Thinking the Limba topped body might get a Wilkinson half-bridge, and 2 P90's... with the bridge pickup set at an angle. And all black hardware. If my patron doesn't want the Mahog/Walnut body, it might get planed down to 1-1/2", chambered, and topped with a curly cherry board I picked up yesterday. I also have in my possession a 1-3/4" thick board labeled as "White Ash". I was told its not Swamp Ash, but its awfully light for its size.
