This guitar is a variant of the Special Kay body shape that began with that shape which I then altered to the design you see above. The top and back are both hollowed like a clam shell to produce a true semi-hollow instrument. Such hollowing yields a more responsive guitar, as well as a much lighter instrument. In this case, the finished guitar weighs only 4 lbs. and 5 oz. without hardware or electronics! To see some progress photos of the instrument, go here
