So this is supposed to lower the resonant frequency of the guitar's tone as well?
I used double sided foam tape, made by 3M. Just the basic stuff you get at Walmart.
It may seem risky, but if you dry the mating surfaces thoroughly, it holds pretty well, but the coolant does loosen it eventually.
I'm not sure if they use tape on airplanes. I would hope not. ;D
I don't know if it will help the guitar "sonically" or not, but supposedly it will.
Mainly, I just wanted the darn thing lighter.
I would gladly pay $4-500.00 for an aluminum HM body I could put one of my spare Steelers on. What a unique piece it would be. You'd see it on Antique's Roadshow in 2050. "Now this piece was made by a self taught luthier by the name of Bo Daggit of the North Dakota Daggits". Magic Pixie dust sound here. Price range=4.2 Billion Dollars.
The video you made of the 3 axis machining process was Oscar Award winning in my book. Bravo. Bravo. Encore. Encore.
LOL That's too funny! Thanks for the kind comments!
My original design has the top one solid piece, as well as the back, and I'm pretty sure I could retrofit this design with a Spyder and HM neck.
I think this concept is the way to go, because the body is sealed, with a full back, and no electronics covers, and the electronics can be removed completely in tact...
I don't know if I'll make another one or not. If I had my own CNC Mill, I definitely would.
I think I'll make a video showing how easy this thing is to tear down and put together...
