I'm going to try to make a body out of some scraps I have laying about. Basically, plane, epoxy and dowel them to make up a blank, then shape from there. The patchwork look will be a "feature" in terms of aesthetics. I think it will come out quite heavy, but am prepared to rout out a lot of material from the back as required to make it manageable. What's a decent target weight for a body with everything ready for finishing? The neck, I'll likely buy, and assume mid-weight, so I'm looking for a weight that will ultimately balance OK. Thanks in advance. Edit: Just looked at the Warmoth stock Tele bodies, and it looks like 4lb to 5lb is a decent weight. That'll do. Thanks anyway.
