Wood choice for JEM - Before I order that custom body
The guy who will build the body for my custom Jem (John Guilford) gave me a couple of options for my Jem body. My plans are to build a Neville look a like, i.e., no coating what so ever on the body. It will have Evo's in it.
Now, he suggested Honduras Mahogany. How does that sound to the folks here? He also has Alder and Basswood. I simply don't know what to expect from these choises, since I've never heard of it anyway.. :biggrin:.
I think I heard great stuff about Mahogany( And he reccomends it), but I'm not sure yet. Basswood is a no-no, I suppose, so I'm doubting between Alder and Mahogany. I don't think I can go wrong with either, but just to be sure.
Now, just imagine this fresh new *handbuild* body...
BTW, I've seen pictures from the work of this guy, it looks absolutly stunning!
