Im considering making or ordering a one piece bodied prs style axe, or even a one piece whole guitar which ive seen in a few places. Has anyone tried either, and is it a lot more expensive to get wood that size?

Seriously, most companies don't use one piece bodies. They normally use 2 or 3 piece bodies.

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.

one piece bodies aren't that expensive. I got my one piece ash body blank for £30- 3 pounds more than a two piece. And as for for one piece guitars? You probably saw a neck through or a good set neck joint

it is possible, yeah. There would be a LOT of wasted wood though. It's be pretty easy if it didnt have a neck angle and only a slight headstock angle.

I haven't made it yet- nearly finished my designing though... The only reason I chose a 1 piece body is because I'm having a jigsaw puzzle of yew/amazique on the top and wanted to have a resonable sustain.

With a piece that size I would imagine you could have significant warping...
