I am going to be the owner of a beautiful guitar from J Cedric Customs (Randy on here) , and I am trying to decide on the body wood. The guitar modeled after an Explorer, but with a much thinner neck for my small hands. I want the finished guitar to be a purplish-pink. I was thinking of going with purple heart because it is really nice but kinda pricey and hard to work with. There is also the option of dying it using Transtint on Ash to get the same result. So SS.org what do you think would be best? Also we are at a toss up on the neck. Set-neck or bolt on?
