i am making a bass for wood shop (my 2nd home made!) and instead of using a one piece body i want to make a multi-laminate bass, not as severe as the rainbow bass, im making a 7 piece top out of maple, ebony and mahogany. but my question is that do you guys use biscuit jointers on the body woods? my shop teacher said i should for strength and to keep it stable while gluing... the top will be about 1/4 in. so i am not going biscuit that, but the rest of the body is about 1 1/2 in. and is probably gonna be ash or alder.
