    I love the sound of a Les Paul, but prefer the playability of a Strat. So I'm thinking of making a Strat with a Mahogany body w/ Maple cap n a Mahogany neck w/ Ebony fretboard. Then some vintage PAF style pups. Prob the DiMarzio 36th Anniversary PAF; it's always my favorite in those yt shootouts. It's hard to make a decision from video tho..

    Haas anyone had an experience making this type of guitar?

    Also, I've noticed that when a Strat/Tele has a Mahogany body it's always a thinline. It's probably to cut some of the weight, but wouldn't take some of the heaviness away from the tone?

    Oh ya, what do you think of Warmoth guitars? As you've probably already figured out I'm not much of a luthier, so I'll have to hire someone to build my creation. I would have already put in my order if the guitars were returnable, but I guess that comes with custom orders.

    Thanks.
