Geo Posted September 1, 2007 Report Share Posted September 1, 2007 It's time for me to push myself into a more challenging project. This design is an angled set-neck, semi-hollow (rather, hollow solidbody) with Lollar P-90's. Here's a shot of the plan. NOTE: on the plan, the bridge is parallel with the nut. I guess I wasn't centered with the camera. So, try to mentally adjust the shape for this distortion. http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q119/Ge...ihollowplan.jpg Any opinions are welcome. In particular, I'm wondering about the headstock. 1) too large? 2) too sharp of an angle for the thin E string? The idea is that the whole guitar will be hollowed out except for a block under the bridge, and the area around the neck pocket. Color schemes... this will have a maple burl top (I think), mahogany body, maple neck. I would like to use a bloodwood fingerboard and headplate. In this configuration, I think it would look cool with completely natural color. Please share other ideas. This will be finished with an oil-type finish, so spraying isn't an option. Any colors would be manually-applied dye. Some specs: 25.25" scale, 2 3/8" body thickness (before carving), 3 3/4" headstock width. Neck tenon: 60mm L, 42mm W, 49mm D.
