Hey Jack, why would it depend on why he wants one? LOL I wanna hear the reasons they will do one vs. the reasons they wont.
ie....so if he wants to play in small clubs they will, but if he wants to just have one at home they wont? ( I understand the jist of your statement, It just struck me funny)
I think if you got the tools, you could hack up a couple bodies ad join them yourself like buy a double and a single, cut, plane biscuts and dowels and glue, sand it down done.
I think Warmoth will do it, they are in the business of making money, and for a price they will build you anything- I hope
