    Was looking to do a mahogany Thinline, but found this single piece, Honduran Mahogany solid body. Being a bit of a wood freak, I just couldn't resist. Getting pretty excited about this project, now. Just needed to share. IMG_0340.JPG

    That’s a nice piece of wood. Have the edges been rounded over? They look a little sharp.

    No, so I could put binding on it. Haven’t decided, yet. Got a curly maple neck coming for it, too. Thinking of going modern, as I have a Babbicks bridge lying around.

    Yep, that's a nice slab. What's she weigh?

    Kinda heavy at 5 lbs. 13 oz. But, that’s one of the things with this stuff. One of the reasons I’m thinking modern is that I’ll put in a tummy cut and arm relief, to drop some weight. Also, everything else I have is vintage style. Haven’t had anything modern-ish in a while. It’ll be fun.

    Arm relief and binding is quite the trick. Beyond my skills at this point.

    They’ll do those before they ship, along with a jack drill. I could do them, but if they’re willing ...

    Oh! I didn't know the seller still had the item, nor that you could do it yourself anyway.

    My God, did I have a disaster drilling the jack rout on my current project. No control or bridge pup cavities (Esquire style wired direct to jack), and filled the routs with wood filler.

    The crappy 12" bit got stuck halfway through. That filler hardens like CEMENT. Took me, not exaggerating, two days to get it out, which includes the time I needed to apply the additional filler I needed to fix the mess I mess I made.
