Hi everyone,

This what I have done from today, its need still lots work to do but i like to share with everyone,
Making electric guitar body is the most work I like, you don’t have to design the shape as its already there (coppy), just pick the right wood up and let its do the talking.
apparantly the rosewood i have is included in tone wood catagories,
No need a special tools to make it,
I make them for my customers in UK, when i show him the photos he said : man get it done and send those beast quick!!

Thanks for the comments guys,
Skarp, yes the wood is expensive $ 20 to $ 35/bdf, and the one who make it expensive is the seller,that’s why me and Bibb are trying to share it with LJs at around $ 9/bdf in Denver Co, the wood now is being kiln dried, i am gonna send to Bibb 846 bdf of rosewood, please contact him if you need some as this is a rare offer,

its come from the same specie dalbergia latifolia, Indo rosewood not only has straight grain likes one from India, its also has high figures, and many colour,due to the growing location, Indo has many many island with different ground caracteristic but it all has the same sounds for musical instruments,
people only knew that rosewood from Asia come from India, infact it is not all, especial now its banned by their government for the big sizes, i have several inquiries from India sometime the Indian buyer want me to send wood directly to USA or Europe and ask me to put the sign on the box ; EIR ( East Indian Rosewood )
as that name has value in wood trade, India is the first country that export rosewood from Asia.
well i have to stop talking before the,,,,come out from it hide.

all te best.

As a guitar playing and LJ, this is amazing. However, if I owned a guitar with a body like this, I would never play it for fear of harming something this beautiful.

Hey Rosewood, great looking telecaster!
I have to ask – you cut the whole thing out by hand?? how are you planning to cut out the pickup cavities?
