1) My plan was for a solid mahogany body with a Flame Koa top , i was informed that a chamberd body might be a better way to go any pros and cons to this?
2) I want this guitar to sound as close to the warmth of a paul as i can with the comfort of a strat anything in the specs that might hold this back?

If you don't want the brightness of a pao ferro neck, but want the raw feel of the original reb beach, you should go for solid rosewood. it sounds warm like mahogany.
