    I´m carving a conpensated tailpiece for my 4/4 suraba bass.
    I´d prefer it to be light.
    But a guitar maker friend of mine give me some good and dry dense indian rosewood... This is really heavy stuff about 1.06 :rollno:

    In order to keep the weight to the minimum how thin would you go performin this task?
    The section where the strings get attached is about 9 mm thick
    I wonder if it would be ok hollow all the back of the tailpiece a bit more.
    Thanks in advance
