kings_x Posted November 18, 2003 Report Share Posted November 18, 2003 Here is a guitar design I am considering. I got a CAD drawing for an ES335 off the web and modified it for a neck-thru design, Strat style bridge and 3 single coil pickups and a smaller neck heel to allow better access to the higher frets. I plan on having a carved maple or walnut top and a chambered mahogany body. 1) Will the neck be strong engough at the heel? This is my biggest concern. I'm not sure there is enough wood between the "ledge" where the fretboard stops and the back of the heel (going diaganal down through the wood). It is about 1 1/3" in my drawing. Is that enough? (does this question make sense without seeing the drawing?) I might have a maple/mahogany lamenated neck. 2) What about using single coils with a chambered body? Good idea, bad idea? I was going to post the dwg somewhere but can't find a host. Mike Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
