    Alright, looks like one piece quilt maple is the winner!
    So, we have a 594 semi-hollow, one piece quilt maple top.

    Question #3
    What should the body wood be?
    Some options: Ash, Ribbon Mahogany, Figured Mahogany, Black Limba, etc. etc.

    Black Limba or Korina (which sound the same to me...but the BL is nicer looking).

    Twin the back with a one piece maple quilt. Obeche is a nice middle for the sandwich.

    I think we need to keep in mind this needs to be a balanced sounding instrument, versus a fantasy piece. Maple on the back is going to make it extremely bright and not very warm. My vote is white korina (limba)

    Not necessarily. A few maple sandwiches have been built before and they weren't especially bright. I think the semi hollow will have more impact on the sound of the guitar than a maple cap on the back.
    Not that I'm trying to change your vote or talk you into anything.

    And remembering that it is semi hollow, I might switch the middle to mahogany rather than Obeche, especially if it is down with an f hole.

    If we're going maple top AND back...why not go full HollowBody with 594 scale length?

    As much as I would love to - I think MAP would be 10 bajillion dollars.
