Prs Body And Top Thickness Question

Recommended Posts

The mahogany body is about 35mm thick, and the maple top varies from 5-6mm at the thinnest (by the neck and sides) to about 12mm max at the bridge

The top is only 12mm thick? Are you sure? It sure looks thicker in the photos.

I've been wondering about the top thickness too since I'm making a PRS style guitar at the moment.


The top is 17mm and I've been worrying about it being too thin and I'd have to use real binding.

Where did you get those measurements?

I use 3/4 ash top for my prs copy. and the back is 1 inch thick

I made it a carve top with 1/4 maple edge all around so it looks like binding.

the maple edge is larger around the neck.

I just got a emil from feff miller and he used 1/2 thick top for his prs all the pictures are on his web site http://www.guitaristjeffmiller.com/guitars10.htm

hope that will help you
