While we cannot guarantee you will receive a body with an exact weight, if you message us after placing your order requesting a light or heavy body, we will do our best to select the closest match we can. Please keep in mind that this is a courtesy, and isn't going to be an exact weight match.
Our colors are not officially licensed. We select color names based on historical color names and what they most closely resemble. If you're trying to get a 100% color match that may not end up being the case with this body. Color variances may be offset depending on the screen you are viewing these images on. Please keep this in mind when placing your order.
While our body's specifications are outlined above, as a 3rd party body that is not licensed you must adhere to an industry standard variance of 1-2mm. Guitar manufacturers spent decades creating different specifications for guitars, and not all parts will be compatible due to vintage, modern, and import variances. When you receive your body we strongly recommend doing a "soft'' build without doing any drilling or any modifications to the body.
I’m a full time tech at SF GuitarWorks and touch dozens of guitars each week. I see it all from Custom Shops to Squires.
When I’m doing customs builds I use AE hardtail bodies almost exclusively. American alder, amazing quality finishes and fantastic fit have made these my go-to.
