    Default Thinking of building a guitar

    Hi folks. I'm bored and thinking of building a guitar. I really like the sound that basswood makes and love my Pacer and was kinda gonna try to intertwine the two. Here's the hard part, can I get a standard strat shaped body in basswood with a maple top in HH format? I've been looking but to no avail. Also really torn about necks. Maple never works well for me and most of my guitars are rosewood.

    Did you try warmoth? I just checked using their "body builder" and they offered a basswood with your choice of tops but the routing option was HSH. I think you can get it custom ordered.

    Their shit is way overpriced. A guitar like I wanted is 400 plus just for the body.
