Hey all! I know it's been a while since I've made any significant progress on my first build thread, but this is what I've been working on lately. I call it Knightro JR! This is my design, done in eMachineshop. This is what it'll be made out of. A nice chunk of jatoba (Brazilian Cherry). This blank is a monster at 18 pounds Template applied. All cut out! Still needs actual routing done. Here's the back. And the side, to give some perspective on the thickness. And there you have it so far. The body is still a bit over 9 pounds...no wonder I've never seen this stuff used for a guitar body before. The neck I'm working on is also jatoba, so I'm pretty sure this is going to be a 12 pounder at the minimum.
