Well I spec'd out a kit today for order, I decided to go with an LMII kit because of the options it gave me for everything. I decided to go with an OM kit with a wr cedar top and granadillo back and sides. It will be a serviced kit for the most part. Just thought I'd give everyone a heads up on my plans! Thanks for all the info guys.

Cool! I know nothing about granadillo, so I can't wait to see what that's like.

Certainly looks like nice wood... In the description on the LMI website they mention it is non-porous, that will certainly be nice when it comes time to finish it. You probably won't need much (if any) pore filler on this wood, which after trying my hand at pore filling on EIR I can only say that is a most welcomed thing! :)

Congrats Jess! Try to take pictures along the way with your build so you have some good docmentation. I wanted to do that but got so wrapped up that I forgot my camera, that and the fact that my work area would make a pig feel disgusted caused me to not get the pics taken that I wanted to. Did they say when it might be in?

Sounds like it will be a great guitar. One tip, buy lots of sandpaper. Granadillo eats sandpaper for lunch! Chad it right that it is non-porus but I did pore fill my guitar that I built with it. It is a great looking wood but you will get quite a workout sanding the stuff.

Here is a picture of the one I built with some LMI granadillo.
