Redwood semi-hollows

Recommended Posts

Like spruce, redwood is light and strong, but I've heard it is not quite as bright as spruce. It does dent easily, which could be a problem for the back & sides.

I've got an archtop hollowbody in the works with a redwood top (claro walnut back & sides); I'll let you know how it turns out (in a couple of years :D ).

The price isn't a problem, as I already bought a 2" thick piece of redwood that's as tall as I am. I will try it and if it sounds bad, it sounds bad. I also got a piece of mahogany for the neck, all the wood for this project has cost only $50!

It will be a fun learning project if anything.
