In case you are still looking for an answer.....I used 1 x 12 edge glued spruce panels and cut the body patterns on those optional cut lines. You want to make sure you cut the patterns along different lines so you get an overlapping joint, one of the patterns isn't real clear on that. My next build will be made with Baltic birch plywood for the body, single pieces, to avoid that joint. I have posted additional photos of my build in another thread in this topic.
