Body blank thickness
Hello everyone, this is Pepe, i would like what it is the recommended wood body blank for guitar body, what was the thinkness used in the tutorial? thank you very much
The body blanks from the Baileys Shop are 46mm.....
Sod it - make tea!
Body blank thickness is 46mm - confirmed - thanks guys!
46mm is the minimum thickness required for a normal sized tremolo system. It needs to be at least this thick to accomodate the trem block and a coverplate - smaller trem blocks are available but hard to find.
If you are not having a trem then you can make the body thinner - I would suggest 38mm minimum.
Also if you are having P90's they require a deeper hole - I would recommend sticking with the recommended 46mm.
I recommend mahogany for the body because it is easy to work and sounds great - but there are many options: alder is also perfect.
Measure twice, cut once...
