Knotty pine mahogany sandwich, yummy?

So I'm pondering alternative tonewoods and was wondering if anyone has tried sandwiching a 3/4 piece of knotty pine with two pieces of 1/2 inch mahogany. If not any guesses as to what the tone would be?
Thanks
Dwayne

Slightly overwound. Magnet: Ceramic-8 ]D.C. Resistance: 16.6K ohm You might have a bad coil Thanks Joshua t...

Re: Screwed up my pickup

Ok the pickup is 7.2 ohms so all is good. Another strange thing when I turn the tone pot to zero it shuts off the pickup. This is a pickup thart was working fine before the magnet swap, I'm stumped.

Screwed up my pickup

I have a Epiphone 700T pickup I did a magnet swap on and it sounded like a tin box with almost no vollume, I put the other magnet back in and it sounds the same, I checked all the wiring and it seems to be ok. I'm stumped. I've screwed something up. :( :?:

Re: First post/first build

Thank you for the replies. I picked ash for it's grain as I knew I wanted a clear finish on my first one, it seemed easier than messing with sealers and paints so I just slapped on a bunch of coats of minwax ployurathane sanding in between buffed it out and it truned out great. The knobs are 60's st...
