Father-in-Law acquired an old church pew, sawed it down to the size they wanted and gave me a big chunk of oak perfect for a body. They don't know any details about where it came from, but it could be hundreds of years old in theory. There isn't much on the internet about oak as a body wood, Ben Crowe used a piece for his 6 hour build so I guess it's useable. I've read that it can be bright sounding when first sawn but mellows with age, so maybe sounding a bit darker after a couple of centuries having Christians arses on it? Can anyone suggest any complimentary woods for the neck? Since it's a blessed piece of God wood I was thinking blasphemy. Maybe red over black stain with gothic inlays. Or take a blow torch to it, a la Ben Crowe.
