so milling around in my mates scrap wood pile in his farms shed i found two peices of jarrah wood, there thick enough and together long enough for an explorer or super strat build.

My first question was will jarrah sound any good on a guitar becoz ive never seen it done before (help me out here ormsby)

And second how do i come about glueing or whatever these two peices together, a link to a guide or just tellin me how would be great

I was thinking about making one, but it would be heavy as, and difficult to work with as it's a very hard wood. I _think_ it would resonate fairly well because of the density etc, but as I said, it would be pretty dificult to work with.

Clamp + glue. Much like making a 3 piece body.

jarrah is a good wood, its very hard, and very stable, yet difficult to find in thick enough pieces for guitar bodies. ive seen it used as necks, and it looked great. dark red, sort of like faded paduak.
