SUPRA-TONE Guitar bodies are 100% MADE IN USA!
NECK ROUTE: 5/8” deep. We check every neck pocket to ensure they are 2.190 + - .007", measure YOUR neck carefully before ordering to ensure it will fit.
- The body shown is the exact body you will receive. No "Bait and Switch" here!
- This body has no finish. Additional filling, sanding and finishing will be required. - You should seal it as soon as possible to avoid splits etc.
- Wiring holes between pickups and control cavity are drilled
- Standard 7/8" input jack hole is drilled
- The first picture is the actual body you will receive, the picture of the rear is a stock picture to show the rear contours.
- This body uses our standard control cavity cover. If you need one you can find it here: http://www.supra-tone.com/product-page/supra-tone-cavity-cover
- I am sorry but we do not accept offers, trades, etc.
- The two biggest issues that arise are "My neck doesn't fit right" and/or "I didn't realize how much work it is to sand and finish". Measure your neck FIRST and be prepared to put the work in to finish the body.
Basswood is an excellent wood choice for guitar bodies. Some of the finest factory guitars are made from basswood. Basswood has a very nice, slightly bright, tone, is very lightweight, and has a closed grain with very few imperfections. This makes Basswood very easy to finish! Sanding is extremely easy and goes fast and it takes just about any type of finish very well. Because it looks rather “plain” we recommend a solid or burst finish.
CUSTOM WORK: Please contact us for all your custom work needs. Please note the following:
