So it’s now over engineered but that’s the way I roll anyway.

Hello, I would choose A. I think rosewood would look stunning for the fretboard and I heard that Jimi Hendrix had an advantage keeping the higher strings in tune longer the reverse way.

I could be wrong about this but...I just think it looks cool!

It may already be here not sure so my apologies if it is. Yesterday at the shop my cousin gave me 8/4 Piece of Black Walnut. 

650dvp back
650dvp front
650dvp body back

==pair this with a piece of White Maple I have left over from my Studio desk to make something similar to a Rick 650D, or Bobs your uncle. Ive owned a few of these over the years, and they rock.

 

Im guessing you would carve the neck before glue up--but what do I know?

@bangy There is a YouTube live stream that Mark did last year about this kind of construction. Check it out.

@bangy

Depends on the body shape but yes,  carving first would be wise. At least the transition. 

Another thing to look out for on a neck through are the wiring holes for the pickups. The thing to do is to route a channel on the edge of the lower part of the body before gluing it all up. Then after the pickup cavities are routed you drill in the corners into the channel, you know what I mean?
