I've been tooling around with a new body design (well, at least new to me). Pictured is my current project with some oak cutouts of a possible design tacked on. I'm guessing having the body attached this far up the neck is going to be a lot of work, but I have seen this type of design popping up here and there and have found it rather compelling. Thoughts so far are a 35" scale 6 string with about 16.5mm spacing. I'm guessing it is going to weigh about 11-12lbs all said and done. Neck is going to be blend of maple and walnut with ash wings, redwood burl top and a wenge fingerboard. What do you guys think about this design model?
