So, I'm wondering, would there be any effect on a guitar's sound if I filled the hollow chambers it has with a different kind of wood? The guitar's carved top has yet to be put on, just so you know.

Well I have a few small spare blocks of some Koa. Maybe it could give the Mahogany some more Mid range. Plus I think its worth the try.

cool, what kind of guitar is it? I'm sort of interested in a semi hollow strat (as seen on warmoth). has anyone ever used one? do they sound any good?
#5
yeah what shape are we talking about here? and i'd say do it if u can, it will weigh a ton, but koa and mohogany sound amazing together

I have a semi hollow with a through neck... It's heavier than a bass.

I can only imagine the same size but solid would be two to three times heavier.

well i dont know. im thinking a LP body Mahogany/Maple with Koa fills would be just a little heavier than a regular solid body Mahogany/Maple LP

If it's only LP size, it shouldn't be too bad. Mine is about twice the size of an LP, but chambered.

cool. i think im gonna go for it, only question now is to find out how to get the right measurements.
