drpossehl Posted September 14, 2005 Report Share Posted September 14, 2005 I am starting a double cut away carve top (my first) using quilted maple and swamp ash. My swamp ash blank is 1 3/4" thick and my maple is curently 13/16" thick. I was thinking of a combined thicknes of 2 1/4" with the maple cap being about 5/8". I'm used to looking at a strat and 2 1/4" seems awfull thick. I dont want to cut away to much ash for fear of the tone brightening up to much. Any one know how thick a simular PRS would be? What do you carved top crafters like for thickness (both overall thickness and thickness of maple cap) ? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
