where in the UK could i order (internet or shop) a nice thin piece of wood (2-3mm) thats big enough to cover a strat body? and how muhc do you think it would cost? i dont especially mind the wood, decent enough though?????
Like a veneer? You'd have to bend it for the arm rest, which I'm not sure how hard that is to do.
go to ikea and cut it out yourself
like a thin piece of wood that i want to mak ea custom pickguard out of, ikea??
Just go to a place that sells wood. Pick a nice looking piece of wood and you're all set. It shouldn't be more than $10.
