I'm using the same shape that I planned to do the 6 string body but I've taken about 20mm out of the middle to keep the dimensions right
Gluing up the body blank which is Sapele and the top is going to be Oak with a Ebony-esque demarcation line between as I really liked that combination when I did my $$ build
The top is going to be Black grain filled again then just danish oiled, I'm thinking of maybe doing a chamfered edge on it instead of rounded for a change?
I'm going to go for a full paddle head flat headstock neck I'm not sure which would look better Rosewood or Maple fretboard?
As far as pickup config I'm not entirely sure I'm leaning more towards a single MM but that could change? hardware will probably be Black?.....👍🏻
