Those that have seen my build threads know that they are usually, in some way, experimental. This time I will try making a hollow archtop. The front and back panels will be laminated out of maple veneer by vacuum forming them over a solid mold. I'm still shaping the mold, so it will be a few day's before there is anything to show. I will reclaim a neck that I built for a previous experiment that had mediocre results. The neck is 6 string, 30" scale and takes a string set designed for a Bass VI. The vacuum bag kit and veneers are from Roarockit.ca . The outline of the shape started from an acoustic bass design, except I have removed the single cut, so the same mold could be used for front and back. The original design, by L. Mottola, can be found here. I'll make up the rest as I go along.
