    Does anybody make a solid Pau Ferro tele body, not just a cap? Warmouth, Musikraft etc? I'd love to get my hands on one, and I've seen a couple builds with these bodies, but where did they come from. I think it's gorgeous, and I want it to be my next build.

    Thanks all, Top

    When you want to build one yourself remember that pau ferro(santos rosewood) is toxic. It can cause alergenic reactions. So take precautions.
    But...its nice wood! maybe abit heavy for a full body?

    Pau ferro is difficult to find in thick lumber. That's why places like Warmoth only offer it as a top laminate. Right now it's not even in their list for that.

    Hi!
    I have built an all Pau Ferro tele from Warmoth parts.
    It is very a beautiful wood, but the body is very heavy. (around 9,5 pounds).

    beautiful instrument indeed

    it is a shame about the weight though...the whole thing must be near 12 lbs?
