So i found all of the parts to the peavey raptor i used to use, and decided to rebuild it. Im just wondering if anyone knows what kind of of wood its made of? Im thinking of droppin a dimarzio tone zone in the bridge because i played a charvel with one in it i liked. So does anyone know what kind of wood the body is?

why was it in parts?
it would seem that everyone pulls apart their first guitar for no aparant reson...

however, +1 to james, if its plywood, look in the cavitys, you should be able to tell quite easly.
if you cant, post a pic and we might know.

Mine amazingly isn't plywood, i don't know what it is though it's very light coloured. Probably basswood or poplar, two of the cheaper light grained woods.

That’s how we’ll know. This is not a test, oh no
