All kinds of hard to find stuff I'm sure we all have sitting around that people are looking for.
We REALLY Need a dedicated for sale section here.
I live in a very rural area with zero hardwood suppliers within 90 miles one way, and the one that's 90 miles away only has Seple (no Genuine Mahogany), and the wrong species of maple so...
I have been wishing for years that someone on this forum would offer a top quality wood-only kit specifically for a Les Paul build that would include:
S.A. Mahogany Body Blank (under 3lbd/bdft)
S.A. Mahogany Neck Blank (1pc)
Eastern Red Maple Top 2 pc (slip matched, flitch matched, or bookmatched priced accordingly)
Rosewood Fingerboard Blank; Madagascar or Indian (Brazilian really isn't practical)
Holly Headstock veneer.
I just hate buying wood online from a photo. You never know if the Mahogany is gonna be 2 lbs/bdft or 6 lbs/bdft. I would hate to end up with a LP that weighs 14 lbs...
I'd gladly pay $300-$400 for a kit like that....Just throwing it out there.
I could do something like that for a better price I believe. I'll get some pricing. If anyone else is interested let me know.
If any of you have scrap pieces of Mahogany or Walnut, or fretboard wood that is too small for a full sized build; but would fit this project http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/luthiers-corner/156043-try-my-luck-dulcimer-uke-build.html please let me know.
You sir are tha man!!!Okay, the guitar wood kit is something I can definitely do. I can do it at a really good price also. I've still got to finish figuring up the pricing. But I know that I can offer many different styles and options. LP standard, Junior, Tele, Strat, J Master, P Bass, etc. I'll start a separate thread with all of the details.
