Folks, this will be my first attempt to build a guitar. It is for my son. I am more than a beginner in woodworking (by no means an expert) so I guess that is not my primary concern. I plan to build an SG utilizing both maple and mahogany for the body and neck. My vision is to have basically a 1.5" stripe of maple running up from the body to the neck with mahogany on either side. Needless to say I want to do something a bit different. My question is do any of you luthiers see a problem with using both woods together in this scheme? I read that the maple is preferred in the neck since it is stiffer. Any shared wisdom would be much appreciated.
