            I am very excited to see this take shape.

                  I'm kinda basing it on this. It's a Gibson and this design is the basis for Orville's one and only patent. The carved top/back hollow body.











                  Now you got me interested. If I remember correctly, this is Gibson's very first archtop guitar.

                    You are correct. I'm drawing inspiration from it more than trying to copy it, however. Mine will not look exactly like it...I'm borrowing construction techniques.

                      The top needs to be spruce....If you make the top walnut it will sound kind of dull. Unless you are making an electric.



                      I like the L4 design a little better:

                        Nope, it's electric. I'm intentionally doing some things to kill resonance and feedback.

                        The top and back will both be fairly thick.



                        Fretboard in place. Still have some trimming to do.

                            Honestly, I haven't even made a final decision about the shape yet. 14.5" wide is the only thing that's set now.

                            Open to suggestions. I'm thinking single cut of some sort.

                              A single cut would look great.
