    I did a curly maple drop top on a tele last year and really like how it turned out. Wanted to do the same on my #1 - model 4 Charvel. Couldn't find a rear rout body so I made my own - questioning my sanity all the while. I bought a mid grade Jackson dinky as I couldn't bring myself to take the Charvel apart.

    Khaya [AKA African mahogany] for the main body, added a slice of maple as it wasn't bug enough in either dimension. Book matched curly maple top. Oil finish. About 3 months or off and on - mostly off. It is a tank - 10.75lb.
