Alright, so now that im coming to the end of my first build (Walnut RG) ive decided to start thinking about my next project.

Ive always wanted to do a semi-hollow body tele, and i also wanted to try out pine since ive seen and heard that it sounded great in the old teles. My idea is to make one out of pine, but with two large chambers and two F holes. Now, for the top piece i have some quarter inch thick acrylic that i would LOVE to put on a guitar with chambers.

would i have any major problems with this? like it snapping in half or something?

yeah, it sounds good. keep it 2 single pickups and give it a jazz tone. i dont think hollow-body would turn out good though =-/ try it though! you never know.

the top 1/4 inch is acrylic, and the other 1 1/2 inch is the pine.

i want to do it acrylic so you can see into the chambers.

I'd say if you go semi hollow and leave a 3"-4" center piece of solid pine down the middle you could get away with it, since that's the only place where the string tension would be.

Go for it.


Yeah this is true, leave a piece of wood for bushings/screws

Hell yes, it would be awsome. I suggest putting leds inside it: leds at night = awsome

put leds with a 9v battery and a killswitch for them

so did you ever end up making the guitar?
If he did, I doubt he's going to end his five year absence to tell you about it.

Reported.
