I've been thinking about building archtops and acoustics. I seen on a how it's made show that companies use heat presses to form the sides of acoustic guitars. does anyone know where I can find one of these and how muck it'll cost me, or if there's an easier and/or cheaper method to make hollow bodies?
acoustics can be made with bending irons. they cost about 100$+. i havent built an acoustic yet but i can see one coming in the very near future. you can get one on stewmac.com but before you jump into things id look up how to do it for a while its not something you can just do with no experience if you dont research it alot, i know for a fact.
