    Thanks. ;)

    I found a company that offers more options (solid mahogany, maple caps, ebony or maple fretboards, etc..) and they're here in the US.

    StarPower Guitars

    Might be worth looking into. :)

    SPG - Our Guitars Rock!!

    i heard its hard to work with but i love spalted maple tops on LPs and explorers. with the right tobacco burst they are just as good looking as any flame/quilt you throw at it

    let me know if you pull the trigger on it. too bad that the lpc kit has a rosewood board.

    spalted maple is okay to work with, just seal it with epoxy and you're good to go.

    Will do!
    I'd like to go with the all mahogany body and ebony board but so far, they haven't responded to my emails requesting pricing and instructions on how to order. I'll let you know if I hear anything back from them though.

    How's that LP project of yours coming along?
    Did you get that Marine Tex yet?
    Just curious how that's working out for you.

Do you build off warmoth bodies? have you build one from scratch?I wanna get started on a project but really dunno where to start. I kinda screwed my epis finish so i wanted to start by repainting but am kinda put off by thinknig ill really screw up,so maybe ill try on something cheaper.

    cool,bout how many have you done? Ill probly get started on my first project in a while...i want to get back to playing again once i finish with my epis electronics lol. What would you suggest for a place to get some decent necks and bodies for a decent price?That way if i really mess up it wouldnt be a really big loss. What did you start on?

    Dino or anyone looking if you have any input on this stuff please tell to!

    eh, i've probably done about 10-12 guitars +/-. if you want to start with some projects on the cheap, i'd recommend picking up some mighty mite strat style stuff. you can get finished bodies at various places online for not a lot of money. you can find some ideas here, if you like: Guitar Parts Online, parts for your guitar or bass, pickups, hardware, wiring and all your guitar part needs - Guitar Parts Online

    anyway, the mighty mite stuff is on par with squier stuff, but it's a nice way to get started and learn how to assemble guitars, do some fretwork, etc, without breaking the bank.

    sully
