So I was up at the family cottage last weekend to help my Dad with the end of season close-up, and we needed some scrap 2x4s to help nail down some tarps... He goes under the house and grabs some AMAZING 100+yr old doug fir 2x4s (like actual 2x4s -- exactly 2" by 4"), and was about to use them for scrap until I saved them for a tele! Wanted to try and leave the top with the patina intact, but couldn't really figure out a way to do it, so went ahead and planed and glued up a blank and cut out the body: Filled the major cracks with some ebony filler and epoxy, routed the cavities and started with some tru-oil: I have a Lollar p90 that's been burning a whole in my drawer for a while, and an SD Broadcaster on the way, purchased from a fellow TDPRI member -- only question left for this body is pick guard or no? I was thinking maybe a Cabronita style guard to show off more of the knotty goodness... can't decide... Maybe something like that??
