pine for a guitar body?

Recommended Posts

I have one that I made from white pine from the Adirondack mountans in New York where my better half is from. It is shaped like a tele with a 22 fret strat neck on the body, it has rio grande vintage tallboys in the neck and bridge. It sounds like a tele on steroids in the bridge position , a Les paul in the middle,a strat when using just the neck. weight is just under 3 pounds. So whatever i want to play whether it be blues,jazz country or rock i use one guitar. THAT ONE!

Will post pictures soon. :D in the B)

Here in Mississippi we can get pine for cheap but other woods are much more expensive. I can't find alder anywhere around here, even at our "local" hardwood store. They have everything except alder or swamp ash .... grrr.

Idea of using pine for testing is interesting I'll admit and have not thought about it. May give it a try.
