    Guitar Wood Experts. $69 for a one piece... I bought 2 and they're both light and nice pieces.

    their site page says 11lbs, sounds kinda heavy

    i could use a two piece but buying one glued up wouldn't be right for the challenge, i could buy a two piece and cut it in half and re-glue it,

    Mine was nowhere near that. The stuff I got was very light. Never weighed it though.

    My most favorite book in the whole wide world.

    Good luck with your entry. A blackguard is always a good choice.

    It really stinks that you always have to use such low-quality wood. :D
