I'm thinking about building my own guitar and i have all the tools. Im thinking about going for all mahogany.

Anyone know a better wood?

I want the guitars tone to be sort of blues sounding and i heard mahogany can give u that deep sound

maybe for you, but try two identical guitars but each has a different body wood- one mahogany and one alder. You tell me they sound the same...

TS: the warmoth page is great, it helped me pick wood for my build.

If you want a mahogany neck laminate it either with its self of a different wood.

Apparently one peice mahogany is not a good idea.

Alder works just as well, as does swamp ash.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Then explain how I can play a Squire Strat (with upgraded pups and neck btw) back to back with a Fender American Deluxe and I can hear a world of difference.

Hint: One is built with top of the line quality swamp ash and the other is made from plywood.

No, I mean laminates. My les paul that was mahoagny, never had any laminates and then I said I had never seen a gisbon that did (have laminates). And gibson are usually mahogany....
