I just got a look at the body of my Esquire before it is shipped. Two piece from the center of a Poplar chunk. It weighs a little over 3 1/2 pounds. Keven at Augustas in Oklahoma City made it for me. It is much easier at this point to have it made. Once I retire and move out of Cali that might change. Kevin is great to work with and he is up front and detailed about a project. I appreciate that. This blank is going to get painted and I haven't really thought about the electronics yet. I just thought I would share the beginnings.
