I'm suggesting you might have a difficult time finding the exact width and length as it's not a common shape for timber dealers to sell, so you might have to buy a bigger wider plank and rip it down.

Seems like a massive job to be honest. It's not quite the same but you can get 1m of 300x50mm mahogany for $50, which is enough for 2 bodies.
