Using Steel For The Top On My Guitar's Body.


Recommended Posts

You should use aluminum because It is lighter....You can get aluminum checkerplate pretty cheap.

I was only going to use steel cause of the look. That way I would not have to paint it to look raw. Weight is not a really big thing,But if it is going to cause problems I don't want to use it.

Thank you!

Aluminium is a better choice...as an easier alternative...check out auto parts shops...I've seen plastic chromed stuff that looks like checkerplate and a range of other materials like carbon fibre. Much lighter, self adhesive, cuts with a knife, reversible, probably cheaper, lighter, etc...
