Andyjr1515 Posted September 1, 2017 Report Share Posted September 1, 2017 It was getting too confusing to cover both builds on one thread, so this thread will be just the build I'm doing for myself based on the the piccolo bass I built last year: I'm going to see if I can further develop the ultra slim, ultra light, curved back approach to produce a full-scale 6-string electric at near to or under 6lbs weight. Construction is going to be essentially the same as the bass, although I will be putting even more chambering in to offset, at least in part, the weight of the extra pickup and tuners. As a quick recap, this is the neck blank, with wood originally planned to be shared from a common blank with the Alembicesque build described on the other thread. The neck is maple/purpleheart/mahogany/purpleheart/maple: The back wings are mahogany, the top is Camphor Laurel and the fretboard is snakewood. This is with the top slightly dampened: Next job is cutting the notch in the neck blank for the top to slot into. For those who saw what I did in the other build, this slot is going to be in the right place....honest 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
