Have you checked out the parts sites (Allparts, Warmoth, Stew-Mac, etc.)? It may be cheaper and easier to build your own, or have someone do it for you..

Peace, Mooh.

I agree. You should give Carvin a call. I know they do things that are not listed on the site. Pick one of the models and see if they can do the ash body for you. They do all they other options you want.

I visited the Carvin factory in San Diego last summer. All their guitars play like a dream. I highly recommend the California carved top!

Try Mike at Dot on Shaft (www.dotonshaft.com). He's also a sponsor here, I believe.

He has one called "Au Naturalle" - neck thru, ash body (looks like ash wings with a walnut line in between the maple neck), FR licensed bridge and...rosewood fingerboard. Ah well, 3 out of 4 is pretty darn good for less than $500 CDN (currently listed on eBay). It also has Grovers and EMG pickups.

I have a couple Dot on Shaft guitars and they are fantastic and Mike is a class act all the way.

Another vote for Lado. Love his stuff, and he'll do anything for you as long as its not crazy (he's a bit like Soup Nazi that way). But a helluva craftsman. 19 yrs after I had him make me a guitar, I still havent played a shredder that comes close.
