So, I've been working on an lp/Tele mix which is turning out great, but currently has paint drying. Since I have the week off, I decided I might as well start a real t-type! This will be my first real scratch build, excepting that I ordered a precut fingerboard from stew Mac since they had a great deal on precut fender scale boards. I'll be shaping the body and neck, installing the frets, and doing everything else myself! Pics of the wood I found to follow - my local store had some awesome flamed maple neck blanks and some awesome 8/4 flamed mahogany. Has anyone used curly hog before? If so, did you stain/sand back like maple to pop the grain? I know I can try on scrap, but I haven't gotten. That far yet.
