Re: Jem"ish" Project Guitar

ok youre so youre going for active (what kind of music do you play ?), what's the wood the body is made of ? (im not an expert : cant identify it so mahogany ? for the scallops, ask a luthier it will be perfect made and not very expensive i guess (ive got a jem 7v and its so good to play high bends notes with the scallops)
