I've always liked this body shape. What do you guys think?
TonyFlyingSquirrel said:Heck, it's already finished, just rout the neck pocket about 4 inchest above the "lower cutaway" & rout the control cavity & pickup cavities. ccasion14:
It's about 4 ft by 5 ft. It's 3 inches thick on one side then 1.5 inches thick on the other so it's pretty irregular. I has some moss under the resin in the natural fissures.givememytoys said:thats going to make a show stopper looks like you could get more thm one out of that thing about how big is it thanks kayle
Tonar8353 said:Yes Gregg you are sick! But the way I look at it; "I'm a one woman man but when it comes to guitars I'm a hussy". Looks like you are a guitar hussy too.
I love the guitar posted, it looks like a Zemaitis. I always loved Tony's guitars, they are so beautiful. I wish I owned one, I could sell it and pay off the house and pay cash for another one for rental property. If you guys start making Zemaitis shaped bodies with glued necks sign me up for a couple.
That piece of wood looks a lot like the stuff Steve Helgeson of Moonstone Guitars use to build in the late 70"s. He used wood like that on Les Paul, Flying V, and Exployer copies and they looked amazing. Go for it.
Remember to take the wife out for a nice dinner and make sure no guitars or amps are around to distract you!!
Maybe burl top and back for an LP with a Mahogany or Korina core. The grain direction and highly figured nature of this particular piece wouldn't make for best stability in the neck pocket so I need an inner wood core of some sort.givememytoys said:i think id try to get a les paul carved top out of it like you said and if possible the leftovers would make a cool tele.
