verhoevenc Posted August 14, 2005 Report Share Posted August 14, 2005 Ok, i've got myself a sweet amount of lacewood and sitka spruce that I'm thinking about making a combination of an archtop and a thinline with. And I'd like to think what you guys think about the idea. Ok, here's the driving forces, I don't wanna have to do braces for the top, etc, and also for it not to feedback so much. So instead of a full hollowbody like the Myka Dragonflies I so adore, I was thinking go with a build type like that of a tele thin line. Keep the center of the guitar like where the bridge and pickups will go solid and only hollow out the side. HOWEVER here's the twist. Unlike a tele thinline which has a flat top, I plan to carve the top, and as for the underside of the top, I was thinking of carving the inside also, however ONLY where it's hollow on the body. SO it'll be like an archtop on the sides, but still have a center block... And the comments on the idea... Chris Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
