I picked up some lumber a week or so ago, with just the barest of ideas of what I wanted to build. Guitars have bodies and necks, though, So I was able to clean up some edges and glue some pieces together, whilst I figure out where this is going. For the body I got some of the lightest black limba I've ever found.  I scribbled up some body ideas and came up with one I like. This borrows quite a bit from an electric mandolin I made a few years back. SR
