lol at britishligean

ya i checked warmoth and there expensive as hell, and stewmac isnt much better.

if i get it from say a local wood yard or watever, what r the dimensions i should ask for?

Depends. What body shape? Do you need any extra wood for a neck or something? If, for example, you want to build a strat, either measure one and add a bit on each side as spare or look online for blueprints or something, and those will have the size. Most body blanks are around 2" thick i believe, so ask for this thickness.

Too easy. But definitely check locally. Within 100 miles or so in gas for a good plank of wood will probably be less than shipping for just a body blank.
Life is about taking risks, as long as the risks aren't too risky.

im doing somewhat of a mockingbird shape. any idea where i could find some blueprints online? if i get it from a lumberyard, do i just buy a piece the size i want? like it doesnt need any finishing or treating or anything special
#13
whatever body blank you get will invariably require finishing, from a wood stain to seal the grains, before putting on a clear coat laquer (if you wanted a wood grain finish).
#14
but none of that needs to be done at the time of purchase? it can all be done after ive cut it and im ready for finishing?
#15
Ahh yes, thats quite correct. You can do all that yourself, you'd just buy the bare wood at the lumberyard.
