flat top, flat back.
ok, ive been doing this a long time, but I could be wrong here, so someone correct me if I am.
isn't a drop top a laminated top but bent over the forearm contour? at least, this is always what ive been led to believe, otherwise its just a laminated top.
Honestly, I could have the wrong discription. I've never looked up the term. I thought a lamanated flat top guitar was a drop top. I guess it's time to look it up.
sok, I was just making sure I wasn't misinformed all these years on drop tops. a drop top is a laminated top that's bent over a forearm contour, hence the name "drop top", otherwise, its just a laminated top.
from what i can find, you are correct, sir
Here's the top
...and the bottom
looking foward to hearing what this sounds like when it's done.
Nice!!! That is looking great, can't wait to see how this beast looks once the neck is on

Nice tap tone, but for it to be Bmaj it needed another Eb And F#......
okay, so my sarcasm needs a little work
starting to look like something...
Really nice work. Love that offset shape. I'm putting p rails in my current build, but yours looks excellent with a dogear
Nice little jam, Ken! btw, did you find out why your YouTube account got suspended?
Thanks Simon, still waiting as to why
a quick mockup before the first wet sanding.
Wow! That looks super classy! Well done, sir.
How did you do apply the color around the edge?
Thanks, Rob, I used stew mac dye in alcohol and hand rubbed the burst. Tabaco brown, vintage amber, and lemon yellow. I did pop the grain with the brown first though.
