Dylanwad Posted February 6, 2009 Report Share Posted February 6, 2009 Since I'm still cluless about a lot of building I thought I'd ask a some questions. 1. If I wanted to build a Les Paul double cut what would be the size of the pieces wood I would need for the body and neck? 2. Am I more likely to have to glue two pieces together than I am of finding a piece large enough to do a one piece body? 3. Does planing a scarf joint at the headstock make it easier or difficuilt to find wood of a proper size? 4. How expensive are different woods compared to each other? Is plain maple expensive? Walnut? 5. Is it hard to put a veneer on a guitar with a glued in neck? I'll stop there for now, five questions is enough for one post! I've just ordered Melvyn Hiscocks book, it seems to get mentioned a lot round here! I'm sure it'll answer a lot of other questions I have.
