how many bpf is needed for a guitar

Recommended Posts


to calculate board feet:

(Thickness x Width x Length) / 144

im ordering a 2"x8"x20" size for my top and bottom. and bookmatching. so 1" top and body.

neck is dependant on if you want to use a scarf joint or a solid block angle carve.

if your using expensive woods (rosewoods or figured woods) you can pretty much kiss thats block idea out of the budget.

i dont know the length of the neck thru, or what headstock or scale length your doing. but 3"x3"x XXX" would be ok i think.
