I have considered it. There are some beautifully figured chunks of that species, fer shure. I just haven't pursued it because I consider myself very much "in the learning stages" of building guitar bodies. I'm afraid having a pretty slab of that wood might be too big of a temptation to wait until my skill level catches up to the quality of that wood. Decent guitar-sized slabs of Myrtlewood usually fetch a fair price, also....... I am however checking into some Juniper for messing around with. I know it's not the easiest of woods to work with when building long bows (no laminations-"self bows"). It has lots of knots, twists, and such. It makes really nice looking stairwy rails and trim, furniture, and the like. But in the central part of the state, as I undertand it/am being told, some government entity is paying property owners to cut Juniper trees down. This is so what small mounts of rainfall that area gets will give more water to native grasses and other plants. Near the towns of Mitchell, Spray, Fossil, and Service Creek, there are quite a few downed Juniper trees. I saw it when I was there deer hunting a few weeks ago. I have a potential source of some I plan to check on tomorrow. There's enough of that stuff laying around that I could screw up several Telecaster bodies, and not feel too guilty about it.
