michaelbambridge Posted October 19, 2005 Report Share Posted October 19, 2005 Hello everyone,apologies if this seems a stupid question.I'm about to start my first build and have already decided that my guitar body will end up painted. It seems to me that to make the body from some exotic hardwood would be a waste of money and resources.Therefore, I'm considering using plywood (multiplex in USA?),or MDF. Now I might be missing something here, but is there a valid reason why either can't be used? Both are quite dense so sustain should be good.Neither suffer from splitting or warping,so what's the problem.Is it just a case of snobbery in that these are cheap products?Please enlighten this novice. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
