I have been doing research on mold making and casting for making pickup covers out of black tinted urethane. I found some good info on this, and also found lots of info for making stuff using graphite/fiberglass as a laminating material together with epoxy. This is achieved by multilayering the core material (wood of course) and then vacuum clamping to make the graphite/epoxy mix pickup the same shape as the neck. This is used extensively in other industries, particularly custom car and bike accessories. Also, if some guy can make a surf board out of some core material and put a shell of carbon fiber and epoxy on it, how come we don't see this more often in basses? I know Parker does something like this, and I am unsure how moses graphite does their necks, but it looks like small graphite sheets that are put on a mold with epoxy. Of course, if you can get graphite dust in large enough quantities economically, you could make a mold of your favorite neck and make it out of graphite/epoxy. Has anybody thought of experimenting with this? what are some experiences or thoughts that come to mind? I was thinking for a long time about making some 1/8" or some graphite/epoxy sheets using carbon fiber cloth to make control cavity covers and truss rod covers.
