Ash or Maple

Recommended Posts

yes, a 2 piece body is 2 pieces of wood glued together. this isn't a bad thing. almost all fenders are 2 piece bodies, and they're pretty good (all personal opinions not-with-standing). mahogany gives good low end and sustain (les pauls are made primarily from it) but, to get the high end, you'll need a cap of denser wood, maple being most common, used noth for its tonal qualities and its looks

when it says glued together doesnt sound very sturdy and stable to me like i would goto cut it and it would fall apart?also when painted do you see a seem line where the pieces are glued?

no and no

a well done bond will not be a weak point in the wood... and you can sand/plane it smooth, so you can hardly see where they are attached togeher before it's finished, so if you won't do a see-thru finnish, you will never ever guess that it is not one piece just by seeing it
