The wood I am using is all stuff I have. The mahogany pieces are all cut from some lengths of nearly 2" thick stair hand rail, from my neighbours house. That is why I have laminated the neck and tail-blocks. Mine are staying on the wall. The pine top is another handrail, it has some nice grain. By no means a tone-wood, but better than using plywood. I would have gone the plywood route, but for the sound-hole inlay, you cannot scrape, sand ply without exposing the layers. I have had a guitar book for a while that displays a range of guitars, some from slightly more unusual timbers than you normally see. I have no firm plans for the bridge, one thought is to go for an arch-top type tailpiece. I want the bridge to possibly have a triangulated look to match the "offset" body line. The neck will be my usual bolt on with 4 recessed T-nuts under the fingerboard.
