Drop Top

Recommended Posts

A "drop top" is a thick top that is bent at the armrest rather than carved...

A "top" is a piece of wood used as a top or cap for the back wood...usually for aesthetic reasons,but in the case of some(like the LP) it has a signifigant effect on tone..

To answer your question...it is only a veneer if it is a veneer...they are very thin...

I would guess that to affect tone at all it would need to be at least 3/8"..I am using 3/4" on my LP
