Guitar WIll Posted March 17, 2007 Report Share Posted March 17, 2007 Hi, I am building a guitar and I have made an Ibanez style body that I am using. It is made from mahogany and is very heavy. I was considering creating cavities in it like I imagined Gibson do with some of their les pauls to lower the weight. And then when I was on the Warmouth site I saw a hollow strat. http://www.warmoth.com/banner.cfm?itemID=6 I should add at this point that I am aiming for a strat sound with this guitar and am using a maple neck and fingerboard. My three questions are: What effect to the sound would hollowing the inside of the body have? Are there any particular ways of doing it. i.e. are there any templates that I should follow, or depths etc. And would it work if I was to route the cavities and then apply another wood top, such as ash or alder etc? Any advice or suggestions would really be appreciated. Cheers, Will. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
