Here we go again. I'm making a fiver following the methods Parker makes their Fly-guitars; wood core with cf skin. First I glued the core out of obeche and maple. Body is full obeche, neck has center strip of maple.
Just your basic glueing, planing, sawing, routing and glueing again. Nothing fancy here.
Then it's time for carving the back. I'm carving only the back and neck at this time.
Obeche is easy to carve and sand. After carving it's time for cf skin. I didn't take any pics of the laminating because I had only about half an hour time to make the whole laminating before vacuum bagging the bass. It has 7 layers of 200g cf cloth on the neck and four on the back. Should be about 1,5mm cf skin on the neck and around 0,9mm on the back.
At the moment it's in my boiler room vacuum bagged and curing. I should be able to have a look at it later this evening or at least tomorrow morning.
Next step is to tidy up this laminate and carve the front for front laminating.
