fact finding for build - should I buy a blank or...

Recommended Posts

i have no planer and no jointer and not even a table saw.  Just a router and some other stuff.  I do have experience cutting two pieces of solid surface to match using the front/back side of a router bit.  I've heard of others using that method to join two halves of a guitar body.

I'm going to go visit some local lumber yards but wanted to ask: what is the liklihood of finding wood that has been planed well?  Is this a recipe for disaster?  Should I just buy a body blank?  I'm confident I can make a joint that will work, but my whole plan would be caput if after that I was working on a surface that was less than flat.
