J-Doe Posted March 4, 2009 Report Share Posted March 4, 2009 ok, I am about to finish up my very first solid body guitar and etc.. that doesnt matter lol what matters: is that i have begun thinking about my next project and i always wanted a Casino or Es335 or 330. My questions are really about building it. my first question is about the top wood... could pine be used for the top? second, do you guys have any advice or any info on how to carve the top? and what type of tools do you need? i could use a small plane but do i have to use a plane that is bullnose?? third, i dont have a lot of money (college student and also planning a wedding) is there anyway i can macgyver a wood bender? four, plans.. i just downloaded the plans from guitarbuild site i think that's how it's called... the plans were made from a poster here... i lurked.. is there anymore free Es335 plans? to cross reference? I have lurked and some of the questions i have asked have been answered but i want to make sure. thank you and appreciate for your guys taking time to help me out oh and ill leave you with a pretty picture of the fine ass casino that have inspired me since i was 14 and which at this moment made me realize i am getting old... grr http://content.clearchannel.com/Photos/mus...pol_live_GI.jpg Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
