Have any of you built a guitar body from 4x4 lumber? Since the actual dimensions for the wood would be 3.5 inches thick, it seems like it would be pretty straightforward to rip it down the middle and end up with something a bit shy of the standard ~1.75" thickness for a tele body. I'm tempted to try it. Is this a terrible idea? The first and only guitar body that I've put together was made from 3 layers of poplar that I bought from the hardware store. Since I was going to be working with multiple layers anyway, it seemed only natural to make a semi-hollow. I like the simplicity though of a single slab.
