Has anyone tried building a Balsa wood Tele? Just curious. The subject of Balsa being used as the center block in the "Lite" series of Les Pauls came up at TGP. And someone was saying, that it's not really inexpensive wood, and finding it in large sizes is a bit rare. It did do a couple quick searches, and it doesn't seem to be difficult to find in pieces that're 2" thick, and 4" wide. Which would seem like a good starting point for building a Tele blank. One place: http://www.nationalbalsa.com/balsa.htm And Wiki says that Balsa's an Evergreen tree (hey, I never knew that!) and seeing as Pine is relatively popular for Tele bodies these days, I figured that maybe Balsa would be good too. Has anyone tried the stuff? What'd you think? Is it hard enough to hold hardware & screws? Does it have a good acoustic tone? Or is the stuff just too soft?
