where to get laminated plates for hollow body electrics

Recommended Posts

I've been building acoustic guitars for some years and recently I'm wanting to build something like an es-175. I'd like to you laminated plates. It seems most of the sound with be coming for the electronic and there is no need to go to the trouble and expense of carving solid wood. I could probably make my own laminates, but would need to build forms...does anybody know of anywhere I could buy arched laminated top and back/side sets?

You can try asking Ken McKay at  www.upnorthstrings.com he was making them and also had some tutorials on using them to build laminated archtops. Also try http://acme-archtops.com/ and http://www.pacinfo.com/~sholst/laminatedplates.htm
