is "contoured" the same thing as a carved/arch top? cuz i was browsing through ebay and fantasising about buying a body... i'm not gonna post the link incase i DO want to buy it ( )

from the looks of the pics i've seen it is, but what exactly could "contoured" mean

yeah i'm not stupid (not trying to pick a fight) but the thing is on ebay, it's possible they don't know what their talking about, and they did not say "back" so i assumed they mistook carved for contoured

contoured is the back of the body or w/e which is shaped to fir your body (Fender were the first company to do this), carved is the top of the body
