When you get to the Flickr page, right-click (or long-press) on the image itself and select "Copy image URL". Then use that to embed here. Like this:



The link you embed needs to end in ".jpg".

Thank you very much, your explanation is very helpful. Rather tricky because I do all of this directly from my smartphone

Pretty cool... I built a couple thin acoustic/electrics this way, with a hollowed-out back/side form a solid billet, and traditionally-braced top. Kozm guitars also builds some guitars in a similar fashion.

But this is actually an acoustic guitar, flattop with one-piece side back, with no glue between. Also you can add electronic for optional. It was chambered just like if we make a traditional boat/kano/kayak from solid wood.



I guess it apllies the electric guitar building method on acoustic guitar. not steaming and bending but chambering

Are you asking why he's building a guitar or why he's building it with this method?

Obviously not. Why would you even suggest that this is a joke? I don't get it.

Take it easy guys . There is a proverb in my country that is "bhinneka tunggal ika", which means different but the real one as well. We have our same goal, but we achieve it in different ways. Together build a guitar, but with a different method. I just would like to share a different perspective here...

I'm still waiting for the progress and will upload it later
Nice to know you all guys here. Anyway, Greeting from Indonesia. God bless u
