Hitone Posted February 1, 2006 Report Share Posted February 1, 2006 I've been thinking about making a hollowbody that the top and bottom join together like a violin or doublebass? If your wondering what I'm talking about take a look at this picture. See how the top overlaps the sides. Would there be any reason why I couldn't do that on a guitar? I know some might say that the binding adds strength, but what about the archtops without binding? Do they do that for the electric basses that look like violins? It seems to me that a bass or violin would have just as much pressure put on them as a guitar. If not more. Ever seem Jimbo (from the Reverend Horton Heat) stand on his? I'm just wondering I think it would add a cool feature to my next hollowbody archtop. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
