Thanks Lonman.  Good eye, it's quilted maple.  I got lucky and found a 3"x1"x2.5' piece in the scrap bin in Home Depot!  I gotta check there more often.

That's going to be a nice looking guitar. Is that wood flamed? Looks like it.

I think better safe than sorry.  Glad you can still bolster it.  Good looking box and nice work so far.  I hope it comes out great.

Thanks for the input.  I did cut it thin so I could put a piezo between  the neck and the top.  The neck is quilted maple and almost too hard to cut, so I thought it would be safe to go down to 5/16"s.  I can reinforce it no problem.  I appreciate your interest.  JT

Nice work, but I think I should say, much too thin through the box - it sure might bow on you.   Just glue up a strengthening board from the butt to an inch or so above where the neck gets thick.
