Hi guys,
On my latest project Im doing a strat style body except sharp edges and rear wired (sort of like a Jem except no pick-guard). Anyway I was wondering what you guys thought about ditching the body contour (the one the back), would it look weird to only have the arm rest? should I skip both the arm contour and the body contour?
Well, since you're comparing it to a Jem then you should already be aware what a sharp-edged guitar with a belly contour looks like...
I don't particularly think the looks will factor into this unless you're going to double-bind the body, so try playing a Telecaster and decide if you like the feel of a guitar without the comfort contours first.
