low end fuzz Posted July 7, 2006 Report Share Posted July 7, 2006 a wise man once told me that, every glue line compresses(i think thats the right word) the sound that will naturally resonate through the guitar; ive started putting together a body (like a 'stripe' guitar) of many pieces, basically cutoffs that are getting all glued in a line, then cut open to a bookmatch, this is made up of wood and veneers(i know its ALL wood) so i'm building up a block 8 in. wide (approx 90mm thick for resaw) ive gotten to 5 in. and am far over 20 laminations; at this rate the body is going to have 80 laminates from left to right; my origianal idea is to have this as a bookmatched body for a 2 -piece bass. im wondering if i should change to a neck thru design with these as wings so the one piece will have resonance directly through the neck to bridge (i think faster than i type; can you tell?) before this was mentioned to me by someone i respect very much; i was under the impression that a flawless lamination was as good as a solid piece of wood, but i guess with so many venners soaking up adheasive; theres alot of glue in that bad boy; comments?
