    HI there, I am building some solid body electrics in the coming months. Anyone know where to get good Maple and alder lumber around Los Angeles area? I wonder where the guys from James Tyler guitar get their Maple and Alder, they are currently my favorite guitar maker!

    I suggest you order body blanks from Warmoth or StewMac.

    That would be an option, but I usually select the neck and body before building. For one guitar build, I prepare 3 neck blank pieces and pick the most stable and has the best tap tone for the build. Same goes for the body blank.
