I'm thinking about building a guitar out of a decent one piece swamp ash body and a pau ferro neck and fingerboard. It will be a H/H guitar with probably a custom in the bridge and a seth lover or some low output alnico 2 or somthing in the neck. I need this to do Nuno Bettencourt first and foremost but also be able to get as close to a Joe Pass sound as a rock guitar can get. Any info or suggestions on these woods and pickups would be appreciated.
Oh yeah, and it will have an original floyd rose on it, which will make things a bit brighter I suppose.
