...until after it warps so you can make it flat again? I built a Tele out of Alder with a 1/8” maple top and there’s now a warpage to the body. I suspect that the reason is that I should have left the body thicker longer - until after it adjusted to the top - then thicknesses it. Normally, when you apply a veneer, you do both sides because of the added moisture from the glue causes the wood to cup. I’m certain such isn’t done for guitars. Is there a difference between drop topping a guitar body and just using traditional 1/42’ veneer (or any thickness really)?
