Preparing for a body build

So I'll be picking up my router tomorrow, will be looking for some wood possibly today or monday

In the mean time, I took apart my RG7321 and decided to make a rough out line of the body !

I'm also thinking about cutting out the pickup routes and bridge routes ! but I'm not sure that will be okay? the template outline is oversized by about 2 - 3cms


This is what I have at the moment

MDF will blunt your bits quicker than natural wood, just FYI!
