About carved body

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by maturanesa, Aug 5, 2012.

  1. Im undecided about carving the body of a bass. Its a neck throug single cut.
    I dont really like that piramid look in the body´s front (but i got to do it to reduce the weight, if not it would be very heavy).
    Its crazy to do the carving on the back? Or is any other way to reduce the weight without chambering?
    The bass body is already thin...

    Pyramid look? What do you mean?

    Is this an existing instrument, or one you are planning? If the latter, are you assuming a heavy weight due to the woods to be used?
