oh if you're gonna carve it down then that should be alright ( not that it wouldnt be if it was 2 inches, it would just be very thick), out of personal interest i'd go with the V. But a kelly would be cool down to the fact i havent seen many kelly builds going on.

there's 2-3 , but 2 of them are by the same guy,and he doesnt have any wood/hardware yet lol.
i was thinking V,but a kelly just seems cooler to me, Marty uses it (this is going to be for my metal stuff,megadeth,pantera, maiden) and he used one,and i find them kickass.

Probably going to have to half that and get two pieces since its both A) more expensive and B) harder to find one piece woods

That being said its not impossible, but it might take longer at this 'store'

so guys, i went today, an they dont have alder, only 66 other woods lol

it'd be alright if i made it from ash? it cant make that much difference, it would still sound better then my current guitar...
and im rethinking this, i think i may build a SG style instead...the explorer i tried didnt seem confortable and the kelly is the same concept...

so an Ash SG with a birdseye maple neck sound good?

OH! i saw a perfect peice of maple for 22$ that would be a awesome peice for the neck

and in the end, i ended up buying nothing today...i kinda regret it.
