If you want it just like that, don't forget the aluminum channel around the edges. You can get that at Lowes for about $10. That way you can use thinner plywood and it'll be just as rigid as...

I could be wrong about the Bullets, but I guess it doesn't matter for this situation. The last Bullet I handled was a vintage ('80s?) Fender Bullet--that was as thick as a regular Strat; haven't...
