Chambering of Bodies
 
 
Most bodies are available in either chambered or non chambered versions. Chambering of bodies in specific geometric patterns not only reduces the weight of the body, but will often times increase and improve the overall tone, resonance, and sustain of the instrument, depending upon the wood type, grain, and grade. Chambering is only available with laminate tops, and some body styles do not lend themselves well to chambering.

 Finish Options

 

We provide the following finish options for customers, such as satin, gloss or vintage clear, dyed, burst or painted. However, not all options are available for all woods, for example, ash wood can be painted, but spalted maple top cannot. (Paint can be Gloss, or Satin.) Please refer to our Finish page for more information. Art airbrushing work is also available for customers. Contact us directly for all finish related topics.

Binding & Inlay Options


A variety of materials are available for body binding and inlays. Price is based on what material you choose and also the difficulty of dealing with the material. In addition, special carving of 3D artwork is possible in some instances, depending on body style, construction, and wood selection.
Please refer to our
binding or inlay page for more information
 

 



Routing options

There are two basic routing options. Top routed or rear routed. While these are the two basic options, there are variations within these two selections. In addition to pickup routing options, routing for tremolo systems, bridges, battery boxes, and electronics specific routings are also available. The standard routing cost is included in the price. If you wish to add something or alter from the standard options, an extra charge must occur. Contact us if you are not sure.
