im thinking of building a jack daneils acoustic for shop class. it is going to be in the shape of a jack daniels bottle, but would the wierd shape mess with the sound/tone?

Hm, I don't think it would too much, but it would most likely have a little effect.

It's September. It is Jack's birthday.

Peavey have actually released a Jack Daniels-endorsed/themed acoustic.

I'd say that the bouts are mainly there for comfort in playing. Bo Diddley's guitar is semi-acoustic and made of a cigar box, since your design would basically be the same shape, I'd say, y'know, should be fine.

Worse comes to worst, just stick a pickup in it :p

Main worry would be the strength of the neck joint if you decide to give it the Jack tapered neck as a part of the main body.

isntead of an acoustic, I ercommend an electric, acoustics are fairly hard to get the maths part right with. Like, there's a buncha weird rules you have to follow when making acoustics.

Make an electric. It will be a lot easier to do. I like the sound of a Jack Daniels electric. I think I might make one too...it helps we have an alcoholic wood teacher

Just build a normal acoustic, and then soak it in Jack Daniels.

You could do it with an electric easier though.

I remember seeing a pic of Van Halens bassist with an electric bass in the shape of a jack daniels bottle. It looked pretty cool too.

Didn't he want to fill it with his piss? Or was that another build somebody was doing....
