3 Wood Challenge: First build, single cut BO

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by Jacsipmac, Jun 2, 2012.

  1. Here's what I have so far:


    I'm thinking:
    • Black Limba body
    • FS Maple neck
    • Birdseye FB w/ green shell blocks, or Pau Ferro with no inlay. Haven't decided.

    Passive jazz pups unless I have time to design and build my own active pre, in which case I may throw a Music Man pickup in the bridge.

    Next: Cut the templates and make a scarf joint jig... and build this before I move on the 28th...

    I like the design. Forgive me for my ignorance/forgetfullness(don't know which it is), but what is FS Maple?
    And I think Birdseye with green shell would look sweet!
  3. Thanks! Im leaning towards the birdseye myself. FS is Flat Sawn. Like a fender neck but with a scarf joint, rather than quartersawn or laminated. FS is probably not a very standard abbreviation. Hard Rock Maple is the species.
