    I want to build a guitar soon so I'm thinking about a neckthrough Kelly with a Ken Lawrence headstock.

    Something like this:
    -3-piece neck: oak-beech-oak
    -Basswood wings
    -Flamed maple top(red stained)
    -Rest of the body and neck red stained too
    -Glossy body and satin neck and headstock
    ~4 cm body thickness


    What do you think?
