Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

Semi hollow bodies, upper bouts.

  1. hey guys!
    Just looking at starting up a semi-hollow body electric by just making the upper bout (or upper wing) hollow. Are there any problems with doing this? I understand if i'm looking at making it a sixer, I may need to look at some ultra-light tuners to avoid neck dive... but having the upper bout hollow and the lower not doesn't have any adverse effects does it?

    There shouldn't be any problems with this.
