Explorer style body?

Hey guys, I'm looking to build an Explorer style guitar (preferably close to the ESP EXP shape) and am having trouble finding good body blanks. I can only find the cheap 170 all inclusive kits, and I'm looking to buy everything a la carte to get exactly the parts I want for my guitar. Anybody know any custom shops online that offer explorer bodies unfinished, preferably with the electronics already cut out?

byoguitar.com i remember the moderator mentioning , the bodies are mahogany not basswood or plywood , a bit of wood working i'm sure you could get the sharp shapes of the EX that ESP has out.

guitarfetish.com but i have no idea what the woods are they use , you can sand off the finish or paint on the chipped bodies but they do have a blank every now and then that requires routing ,check back constantly they always surprise me
