Chambered Body

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about building a chambered body for my first project and was wondering what kind of sound I would get from it and what would be the advantages and disadvantages. I'm planning on having a LP style guitar with a Mahogany back and a Flamed Maple Top with a set-neck. Anyone who can help please do so.

I forget which model it is, but the Gibson custom shop makes a chambered LP. Also, Warmoth makes chambered bodies. In both cases, they discuss the impact on the sound.

Personally, I find that the biggest difference, in the case of Tele's, is that they are too body light and neck heavy. So I have to prop the neck up with my hand.

For more thoughts, do a search on this sight. There are numerous threads already existing.
