Dao Wood

Thinking of having a custom JEM body made. I had a dao wood acoustic and loved it. Has anyone ever played a dao wood solid body?

Thoughts, ideas, or critiques?

Re: Dao Wood

A lot of woods used in acoustic guitars seem to be pretty much acoustic guitar exclusive - spruce for example. Are you sure a thin piece of wood that works in the accoustic will work in the electric? How much will that end up weighing when it's a solid block the size of a Jem body?

Re: Dao Wood

also have to think about stability and strength of the wood. If it can't withstand the pull of the strings on the trem poles, you're screwed.
