as loads of people will know evh got his guitar body from a big pile of body seconds. does anyone know where i can get some seconds? i figure it'd be cheaper than a proper one, and i wouldn't need to strip the paint (im sick of sanding)

i thought they'd probably be hard to get hold of now tho because most companies have a cheaper alternative that they'd just lend the body to.
Check the Golden Pages. Look under Guitar repair and give them a ring. You might find someone who is offcuts that way. Otherwise I would have no idea. I don't off any websites that would sell second hard woods.
