Who would you recommend to build a body? And out of what?
Well, just got hold of a jem pbk neck (yes!!!!!!) and think I might just have to build a guitar round it, so will be off looking for a body for it.
Now, i want something different than basswood for a start, further, I am think of either getting alder or a mahogony with maple cap, just as i want it to complement the guitars I already have (ie, i have a mahogony s, swamp ash/maple lacs, basswood rg and a basswood jem) so want tonal variety.
So basically, what do you guys reckon in terms of wood choice, and who would you recommend to make it for me? I want a good job doing, as it NEEDS to be able to survive a touiring enviroment.
I am thinking of going with simms again, as the swamp ash body he made for the UV from hell came out really well.
