First post here, but have lurked a bit. I want to show what I have made because I think it will be of interest here but please don't mistake me as an expert. I have many questions, especially electronic related. I designed this hybrid tele-ES335 guitar with the thought that it would be fun to play and modify with different pickup configurations. It is built like a Gibson ES335 with a semi-hollow body. The top, back and sides are laminated using molds and forms and vacuum bagging to press them to their shape. There is a solid block going through the center similar to the Gibson. The guitar is built like an acoustic or archtop guitar with sides and kerfing with glued top and back plates glued on. After carving the arched forms for the back and sides and making double side forms, I thought that I would make a batch of 6 to start. This one will have a Tune-O-matic bridge and stop tailpiece, double humbuckers and tele controls. Not sure what pups yet. The neck rout, pickup routs, bolt on neck, wiring and finishing are yet to be done.
