Not sure yet on exactly what I want to use wood wise. May just do a solid mahogany with a red stain. Not sure who I'll have make it, depends on my final wood choice.... :icon_biggrin:

Sounds pretty good.  The body looks a smaller form factor, so it might come in a little on the light side.  How well does purpleheart stain or paint?
