Basswood body blanks?

Recommended Posts

I might be interested soon myself. I've already found a source locally for 4/4 and 8/4 mahogany thats 12" to 13" and I found a source for Koa the same size as well.

Just scored a 3hp router and new table that I can set-up especially for doing body's this summer. Might have a go at necks from scratch as well.

Basswood would be a great alternative to get some practice on :D

Well for starters probably RG Strat and Tele style since I can build the templates from what I already have in the shop.

Yes anything under 2 to 2-1/2 hp would wear out quicker when doing the edge's of a 1-3/4" thick piece of wood, especially if you plan on doing it regularly. Not that it couldn't be done, it's just that I want to be able to do a whole bunch of stuff and not worry about wear n tear on the equiptment.
