I have a very nice piece of figured maple I would like to use for the top of a Tele body. I'm not really trying to make a pure Tele, just something I have built myself. I will likely get a neck from Warmoth. I would like to make the body a bit thinner/lighter then a standard Tele. After milling the maple I will likely be left with about 1/4 inch thick. If I was to use alder for the back, I was wonder how thin I could go before the wood around the pocket is no longer stiff enough? Any thoughts?
