Semi-Hollow Top Wood

Semi-hollow construction bodies have a bookmatched 1/4″ thick top. You can choose the top wood to match the back, or upgrade for an additional fee. We grade our 2 piece bookmatched Flame and Quilted Maple tops as either ‘Choice’ (nice, but not mind-blowing) or ‘Prime’ (the killer stuff!).

‘Choice’ Flame Maple (1/4″) $90
‘Choice’ Quilted Maple (1/4″) $90
‘Prime’ Flame Maple (1/4″) $190

Carved Top Guitar Body

LamTops

Almost any guitar or bass body style can be had as a LamTop.
Tops with a thickness of 1/8″ can be bent over a forearm contour using a vacuum suction system. When choosing a 1/4″ top, a forearm contour is not available.
1/8″ LamTop S bodies have a slightly less pronounced forearm contour than non-LamTops.

We grade our 2 piece bookmatched Flame and Quilted Maple tops as either ‘Choice’ (nice, but not mind-blowing) or ‘Prime’ (the killer stuff!).

While the varieties of Maple are most popular for LamTops, from time to time other interesting woods find their way into the shop. Please contact us for alternate top pricing and availability.

Prices listed below are in addition to the cost of a body.

LamTop Wood Upcharge
‘Choice’ Flame Maple (1/8″ or 1/4″ thick) $90
‘Choice’ Quilted Maple (1/8″ or 1/4″ thick) $90
‘Prime’ Flame Maple (1/8″ or 1/4″ thick) $190
‘Prime’ Quilted Maple (1/8″ or 1/4″ thick) $190
