This thread is intended to give a little insight into the construction of a semi hollow electric guitar body. It is my hope that it will inspire some of you to try to build your own, and heighten awareness of the art of lutherie. There will be many detailed pictures, and I hope you enjoy it. This instrument is not for sale. I found a rough walnut plank that I really liked, and bought a 3 foot section of it. After a bit of block sanding on the face, it looked like this: It had really cool end grain, too. I cut it roughly in half, and squared up the edges on a jointer. I had not planned on doing this thread at that point, thus have no pictures of that operation. Once I had determined the orientation of the two halves (for the prettiest grain pattern), I glued and clamped the two pieces together and left them to dry overnight. The following day, I removed the clamps and inspected the new "blank". So far, so good... This is where it sits right now, I will post more as things move along.
