Hi, looking for a bit of advice from my fellow HC'er guitar builders.


I want to add some strat contours to my tele body I'm building. I would like a tummy cut and the strat contour arm contour. Could someone describe the tools and technique I would need to do this?


To clarify what I mean...






Here is the body in question I want to add these to...




Thank you in advance :)

That will make a nice looking tele.


An easy way is to use a saw to cut slots along the contour, then use a hammer and chisel to knock out most of the waste, then sand it smooth.






An easier way is to use a large bandsaw and run the body through at a steep angle.
