This particular guitar doesn’t look all that exciting right now. And, truthfully, it’s not too exciting; it’s just a slab of wood. That’s the humble beginning for them all. That’s where the excitement starts. We never get tired of selecting wood and envisioning the guitar that’s going to emerge.

This hefty chunk of maple will become a semi-hollow body Cyclone. Yes, maple is a heavy, dense wood and isn’t necessarily the first choice for guitar bodies. In this case we’re building a semi-hollow body, so much of the weight will be eliminated. The maple will retain a strong frame.
