i want opinoins on a fiberglass acoustic that i could make, i was thinknig of haveing a small shallow hallow neck, and probaly a wood fretboard may even cast the bridge out of fiberglass and such, probally would paint it red. what u guys think

Hollow fiberglass neck might not be strong enough for the string tension of an acoustic guitar..

Hev you ever built an acoustic guitar before? I would probably try with proper wood to get the hang of it and know what needs to be done and how, before starting experimenting with fibreglass.

i have built hollow bodys never a full on acoustic, i was wondering if it would flex or not i was thinknig it might not just because id use tigerhair and stuff when making it to make it stronger. i redid the bottom of my canoe with fiberglass and that was strong enoguh for some class 3 rapids so i think it might hold up but then again i am not 100% shure as i am also not the best at fiberglassing , i was thinknig also polyresin hemp soundhole so it breathes but isn't a hole
