Hydrogeoman Posted April 2, 2006 Report Share Posted April 2, 2006 I am planning on building a Fender Jaguar type guitar and wanted to get your input on using Beech for the body. It will be stock in most electronic aspects (1962 Jaguar style single coil PUPs) and the neck will consist of maple/purpleheart/maple. I was going to use alder for the body originally, but saw the Beech wood at my supply house and became intrigued with the idea. I am looking to get a twangy sound. The Beech wood is much denser and harder than the alder, so I am concerned that it may be too bright sounding in conjunction with the neck I am building. I also have no idea of its stability. Thanks for any input or experiences you could share. Cheers, Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
