Cutting out the Body and Fretboard

I’m posted in Emergency Medicine and today is our changeover day. This gives me some time to get some work done on the guitar before I start an 18 hour shift. I found a woodworking place near campus called Aadhar Woodworking. This place is great, has great staff and is much better equipped than the last place I used in kodambakkam. My Fretboard was cut to the drawing and planed to 1/4 inch thickness.
I then had the Body band sawed to my drawing. I decided to go bigger because I’d be rounding the entire body and was thinking of putting a slab of paduk wood betweek the wenge plates to add an accent. Along the way I found a gorgeous piece of paduk and am now in a bit of a dilemma as to which wood should be the top wood… I’m leaning more towards the Paduk now…
