    Hi, hello and how are ye?

    Just a quick qiestion on a build I am slowly starting to proceed with.

    In general, was wondering if its a good choice for a semi hollow telecaster style?

    Body - ash
    Top - Japanese Cedar (thats my biggest concern)
    Neck - maple , not sure what fingerboard yet...

    Thanks.

    Japanese Cedar is a very soft, fragrant wood. It may not be the best choice for a Tele top.

    GuitarBuilder, thanks for your reply. I am aware it is very delicate, guess will find a different option for the top - any sugestions ?
