Received my neck from EvilBay today. Off an RG 470!
Now to get some Alder to create a body. It has begun!!!
Question with regards to building a body. It's a lot cheaper to buy the timber when it's a 2 or 3 piece body blank. Now I understand thta if you have to go with a multi-piece that 3 piece can be the way to go as the centre piece is where the pickups and bridge will sit, meaning that they still have the advantage of sitting on a single piece of timber rather than split on two pieces, thus potentially giving the guitar a more balanced tone.
I've been checking prices with luthuiers in Australia and I haven't really noticed anyone advertising 3 piece blanks, just 1 and 2 piece. If I were to get a 2 piece Alder blank, and given that I'll be slotting some EMG active pickups in it, am I running the risk of potentially having an unbalanced tone when playing through an amp?
I know that the best is to have a single piece but I can't really afford that luxury.
