Solid / Chambered / Hollow Body Construction
The way your body is constructed on the inside plays an important role in how your instrument sounds and feels. Your instrument should always help you to play your best so that's why Warmoth offers you choices you don't get from off-the-rack retailers.
(The construction options available for your selected body shape are listed in the drop down menu on the body builder page.)
Solid body construction is as the name implies; solid wood from top to back besides the routs for hardware, pickups and bridges. Solid bodies are the most common construction type for electric guitars and basses. We know that great woods equal great tone so we've spent decades acquiring the best wood for a selection that is unmatched.
Warmoth's chambered bodies reduce weight by a minimum of 25%. They are very resonant, with better sustain than their solid body counterparts. Alder, Ash, and Mahogany each retain their tonal signature, but notes are more open, full, and fat. Warmoth's unique chamber design also eliminates any feedback issues.
- 25% less weight

We are so certain you will love your chambered body that we guarantee it. Purchase any chambered guitar or bass body from our In-Stock Showcase and try it in the real world. Bolt on a neck, string it up, and play it. If you find you don’t love the resonant tone and light weight, return the body within 30 days for a full refund.
Hollow Body construction contains 2 or 3 large chambers inside instead of the honeycomb-like chambers of our Chambered Bodies. These large chambers result in a fat, woody tone with good brightness and pop. The weight is about 1/3rd less than a solid body. Choose the body core material for your "wood tone" preference then choose the face or top wood for the look you prefer!
Omit Inner Bridge Chamber option. When you choose the Hollow Body option you are given an additional choice to omit the small chamber under the bridge area and leave it solid. Choose this option if you are planning to mount a Bigsby style tremolo bridge or other types of bridges that require your own routing or mounting holes in that area.
