it would be pretty hard... You would need to like get top and bottom piece of acrilic. 2 side bits pretty thick and then cut out the shape and glue it down.... Although you don't want any glue getting inside. Or you could get a big bit of acrylic and route it out except for the bridge and pickup routes and control cavity and the jack. Its pretty hard all in all..

Its gonna need some good pickups though, I doubt it will have good sustain.

use a clear lucite body, that's what kirk used according to the cunning stunts DVD bonus thing about all of his road guitars. once you're ready for the liquid, cover the cavities to be filled with oil, then fill it up with the same kind of liquid in wave machines. i've got an idea for three separate guitars like that, but each with different color fluids and body shapes.

I think it'll look better if you routed out a load of of channels running through the guitar, like have a main chamber at the back of the guitar and then maybe rout out a series of channels going around following the line of the guitar and then rout channels that go around the pick ups and inbetween the bridge and controls, then when you have the two liquids in it it'll flow through the chambers when you move it, which will look pretty good i think.

Also it mean's you will only have to rout one big chamber at the back and then little (i'd say 3/4 inch) channels with the router. plus you'd still get some sustain as there would be solid blocks of plexiglass inbetween the channels


EDIT: also some kind of flourescnt oil material would look amazing, if your playing a gig and it's fairly dark you'd see all the flourscent oil flowing through the guitar

Only if you also had a lamp producing light of the required wavelength to excite the fluorescent component. Fluorescence isn't the same as glow-in-the-dark after UV exposure.

Fluorescence is a luminescence that is mostly found as an optical phenomenon in cold bodies, in which the molecular absorption of a photon triggers the emission of a photon with a longer (less energetic) wavelength.


You could mount a cold cathode UV tube in a cavity to the rear of the guitar, and use a fluorescent liquid that responds to UV. WIN

good pickups, good bridge, and experience with making things out of plexi-glass. also, do what hammet was originally going to do, fill the guitar with your piss. lol.

wow, that would be quite the undertaking. it would be awesome if you used something that was UV reactive for it. does anyone have any idea how they got the liquid in once it was assembled? or was it put together and sealed somehow with the liquid in there.
#12
They make the one side with the cavities, fill it with liquid, then glue the other side on to seal it

The S.Duncan Dimebucker is over rated use a Bill Lawrence XL500L. The Dimebucker is a copy model of the Xl500L. It comes down to $50 for the xl500l or $100 Dimebucker.

wont it sound like crap cos most of a guitar's tone come from wood?


not like crap, it wouldnt have much life to it, kinda plain.

but wouldnt you have alot of sustain?


i looked into building an acrylic guitar once, i found out a big enough piece to build a guitar with would cost $80-$100.

He might as well just have it machined by a company if he's going to do this, seriously TS, do this and you will be a lucky man for being able to pull it off.

There's not much wrong for that price. A good slab of wood will run you about that much...

It'll sound fine, so long as you have a snug neck joint and some decent pickups (NOT DIMEBUCKERS! ) .

None of those are really considered "top" pickups. DiMarzio, EMG and Seymour Duncan (the brand that makes the dimebucker, which is really nothing compared to some stuff SD make), top pickups are handwired boutique, think Bareknuckle, Bartolini, Rio Grande etc etc.

But yeah, it should be fairly simple, just like a chambered guitar, but with plexi glass and a bit of blue coloured liquid, though you should do what Kirk Hammett originally wanted and piss in it

well, in a chambered guitar, the chambers don't need to have perfect edges..

with the plexiglass, you'd need to get your chambers perfect, with consistant edges

still possible, but..probably not as easy as with a guitar
