How Thick Does "top Wood" Nedd To Be?

Recommended Posts

Most Les Paul solidbody archtops (or carved top) are 5/8" thick. Some builders even go as thin as 1/2". I personally like 11/16" or more on my guitars. If I have access to thicker woods like 1" I will definitely use them and make the arches taller. A tall arch looks really cool.
