    ES Build

    I was finally fortunate enough to have someone pay me to build one of these. I think it turned out well.Click image for larger version.

    I laminated the bent sides over a male mold the pressed them with an air filled hose inside a female mold during the glue up.

    I did a wood electronics cover, which I really ended up liking. It has an electronics cavity because I installed a piezo bridge with a preamp for it which would not fit through the F hole, or pickup holes.

    Awesome! And the access cover for the electronics is a great idea. It is a MAJOR pain to wire a semi hollowbody through the F holes.

    Always good to see your builds Dave. Excuse my ignorance but is the idea of the hollow body to reduce the weight of the guitar or is there some functional musical reason i am not aware of?

    Did some googling to understand but it did not answer my question found this site you may find useful there is info on it about wiring the electronics check out white papers.

    This guy speaks to Vaughns point and your idea of having an access

    Looking forward to the rest of the build thanks for posting.
