Thor Posted January 22, 2009 Report Share Posted January 22, 2009 hi all, I'm new to this forum, I've been an avid reader of all the various topics, and this forum has helped me so much! but i can't seem to find anything on Steel body resonator guitars; i've built a few electrics, and have been doing research to build my very first acoustic (yay!!!!) My grandfather has demonstrated major interest in steel body resonator guitars, and since i have access to a mill, as well as a CNC machine (maybe), I deceided to do some research, since his 70th birthday is coming up.... And i can't find anything anywhere about the bracing on the inside of the guitar, National has one picture of the guitar on its website under the R&D section of it's shop tour slide show http://www.nationalguitars.com/admin/shoptour/shoptour.html But it doesnt give me enough information. basically what i need to know is: -is it steel or some other sort of material (aluminum?) -what are the bracing patterns? -i've noticed that the neck acctually continues through the body, how is it fastened? - if theres anyone with pictures of ripped apart ones i'd greatly appreciate seeiong them Also I've been toying with the idea of attempting to design an adjustable nut, or neck, much like a floyd rose, or a babicaz (Sp?) spyder acoustic. Anythoughts? Thanks Much God of Thunder.... well sort of Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
