I am considering replacing the body on my basswood Ibanez rg560 with another body that's shaped similar but with different wood. I want it to sound as close to my les Paul as possible while still retaining the Ibanez shape. I have a person to cut the wood slab on a cnc machine and have a mill to laminate the 2 pieces of wood. The slab has to be 1.75 thick before going into the cnc machine. How thick should the Honduran mahogany be and how thick should the maple be before the machine cuts it? What type of maple should I get for the best tone? Should I get one solid piece of mahagony and one solid maple or multiple pieces? The guitar is going to be painted so I'm not worried about it looking flame maple or ? My favorite les Paul is the deluxe with the pancake body. Should I bother getting the pancake slice of maple in the center? I will be having it clearcoated with nitro after paint. Should I get dense heavy wood for the best tone? I play mostly rock and metal although alot of clean sounds as well. Thanks in advance for your insight and advice.
