I recently sent two necks (and only one body) to MJT to do a Vince Gill ‘53 project. One neck was quartersawn maple and the other was roasted quartersawn maple. I figured I’d have them both aged in the same way and pick which one I liked better once they sent the parts back to me upon completion. I’ve decided I’m going to keep that Vince Gill project traditional and stick with the unroasted maple on it. That leaves me with an extra neck. What do you need when you’ve got an extra neck? That’s right, an extra body. So I found this cool reclaimed redwood body on Reverb and thought it might be a cool match for the roasted maple neck. I’ve always wanted a B16 Bigsby guitar so I think I’ll use this platform for it. The one-piece bridge is a little scary. I’ve read that old growth redwood can vary pretty widely as a tonewood but tends to be on the brighter side (similar to reclaimed pine I’m guessing). I was also considering a Gilmour Workmate-style pickup set (Esquire with an uncovered neck pickup). This one is turning into a platform to try all kinds of crazy ideas...ha. Pics below of body and a Masterbuilt with the B16.
