I know what you're saying, and I agree for the most part. I just don't know if there's really anything that unique about Yamaha's maple shell that you couldn't get with a Keller shell of similar thickness. Add the other necessary elements and I think you could get in roughly the same ballpark.Seems an incredibly expensive experiment to run. I’m definitely not at all sure that a glue-heavy 10 ply Keller would react the same as a Yamaha shell. You may be right, but I’d want to watch someone else do the experiment first before dropping the money and time into it. Or heck, I’d just start looking for a maple custom kit. They do come up for sale semi-regularly.
