    I've been wanting to have a solid body version of an EB2 built. Are there specs available for the body?

    IIRC, they are nearly identical to an ES 335

    Thanks. Any idea where those specs could be found? Or how do you go about building something in that style?

    Found a partial answer to my question:
    16 ½-inch width and 20-inch length. Of course, that doesn't begin to define the shape, but it's a start.

    Found some more info:
    The main body is 1 1/2" inches thick (not counting carved top and bottom)
    Top and bottom are 1/8" inch each
    Which come out to 1 3/4" inches total.
     
  6. If you can find a good, straight on picture you can use a known measurement, body width, 12th fret to bridge, to figure out the other numbers.
     
    PDGood and Beej like this.

    If you make that all completely solid it will probably end up weighing very much.

    I'm thinking chambered would be the way to go. Plus I have some very rare 900 year old wood that is incredibly light yet still a hardwood.
