I'm old with a bad back and need to build a Tele in the 5-6lb range - what wood would you suggest? Or would I be better off building something hollow or extremely chambered? I've built with Pauwlonia but find it hard to finish. Fortunately I have a local lumber supplier that stocks lots of 8/4 stock but all hardwoods. I've done all the above, just wanting to get suggestions from the hive mind. Attached is my last Pauwlonia surf Tele build.
