im making a lap steel and im not sure what wood to use...im thinking of using mahogany be cuase its the obvius choice, but are there any woods that i could use that would sound better and ring longer and that im not gonna have to trek throught like china to find.

and also i think i will use a humbucker, but is there somthing wrong with that( only reason im asking is becuase ive never seen a lap steel with a humbucker) and should i just use one or two
