G_urr_A Posted January 21, 2004 Report Share Posted January 21, 2004 I started making a guitar about 9 months ago in school, and then I continued at home, working a little bit every now and then. The guitar is now in playable condition. However, as I didn't know anything about making guitars when I started, and since I got the wood for free through school, I didn't make any templates for the routing that was done. So it was all routered free hand, and it looks that way too. It's only the neck pocket that is really ugly, but everything else could really use some working on too. So, what I'm wondering is what you think about the idea of routing the messed up routs bigger and with square corners, glueing in a piece of the same wood originally used (birch) and rerouting the cavity. How would it affect strength and tone of the guitar? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
