Hugo Posted February 9, 2006 Report Share Posted February 9, 2006 Hi, I would like to build a Telecaster-like semi-hollow body for my Ibanez neck. Here’s the plan: I use a bookmatched set of black limba for the bottom section, in which I mill 3 cavities; one left, one right and one ‘behind the bridge’. I cover this lot with a bookmatched set of maple, cut to a slightly curved top and two F-holes. It will have a Strat-like pickup arrangement. Yes, a lot of work, since I only have hand tools… I purchased the wood at a ‘tone-wood’ shop, but before I start cutting, I have some q’s. 1) I found this example (Warmoth): Why did they make all the little chambers, should I do so as well or is my 3 chamber idea valid? 2) Is there a drawing available (.dxf, .dwg) somewhere of a telecaster outline and bridge placement? 3) Is there a digital drawing (.dxf, .dwg) available somewhere of the Ibanez neck cavity? Any other helpfull hints are welcome, too, of course. Cheers, Hugo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
