One piece body guitar

THE ONE-PIECE MASTER II

Beyond its technical excellence, the "One-Piece Master II" features some of the finest hardware ever seen on an electric guitar.

The strings rest on a woolly mammoth fossil horn nut. Softer than bone and pre-ban elephant ivory, it renders a mellow tone that fits perfectly with the natural tone of the "One-Piece Master II".

The bridge is shaped from a Damascus steel billet. Initially used by blacksmiths for manufacturing luxury blades and swords, Damascus steel is prized for its distinctive patterns and incredible density. Its use for the bridge gives the "One-Piece Master II" a precision and dynamic that defy comparison.

The 3 knobs are shaped and finished like pieces of jewelry. They feature the unmistakable SAUVAGE GUITARS "angle-cut triangle", a symbol of perfect balance. With its angles cut, the triangle becomes a hexagon in reference to the French roots of the brand.

The "One-Piece Master II" features spectacular pickup tops cut from solid blocks of Fortal. Originally developed for use in the aerospace industry, Fortal is known for its high resistance to corrosion. Beneath the outstanding tops the "One-Piece Master II" is powered by a custom wound pickup set.

BARONESS ONE PIECE 7

PUSHING THE ART OF MAKING GUITAR TO THE NEXT LEVEL

This guitar had been designed for the first edition of the HOLY GRAIL GUITAR SHOW (Berlin / 2014). We’ve built this guitar in one single piece of figured ash. Building a guitar in a single piece of wood is quite challenging but we’ve been further with a flamed maple “through-body” fingerboard. Thanks to the “one-piece” body, the custom fingerboard and the string through body bridge, the sustain and resonance are far beyond comparaison.

The Baroness is powered by a pair of Bare Knuckle Warpig 7s. The Warpig humbucker was originally conceived as an all-out extreme metal humbucker capable of seriously dark and saturated tones. However it soon found uses as diverse as jazz and fusion establishing itself as a major player in the Bare Knuckle range. The twin screw coil design produces an even and controlled treble response, working well with intense levels of gain. Bass and mid range response is monstrous and the different magnet options allow for the tone to be further refined to taste. The default Alnico V magnet creates the smoothest hi-end with a totally organic mid range grind and deep bottom-end. For players looking for even more output, the ceramic magnet option delivers faster bass reaction, smoother mids and a sharper cut in the highs.

With its retro-modern badass look, the Baroness 7s is a versatile instrument offering a wide tonal variation for everything from jazz, blues, rock to extreme metal. The Baroness possesses all the power, tone, feel, and mojo of a legendary machine.

 

GOOD WOOD = GOOD TONE

A lot of attention is paid to source premium quality wood for all our instruments.

The body is made in French figured ash (+60 years of drying). The piece of wood pushed us to build this guitar in one piece. We’ve used the piece of wood to create an outstanding display for the guitar.

This Ash is very hard, heavy and dense. Its density contributes to a bright tone and a long sustain. It is a very musical wood offering a very nice balance of brightness and warmth with a lot of “pop”

The fingerboard is made in maple, a very hard, heavy and dense wood. The tone is very bright with long sustain and a lot of bite.

One-piece vs two-piece body

Postby BadMonkey » Fri Jul 13, 2012 2:01 pm

Can anyone summarize the pros/con's of 1-piece vs 2-piece bodies?
Always thought 1 piece was better.

Thanks in advance for any comments

On paper, one piece is better than two. No joints to worry about and resonance should probably be better.... theoretically.

But I'd rather have a 3 piece body, joined properly, with great wood than have a one piece body made with mediocre wood.

Functionally, all wood being equal, I challenge anyone to hear the difference in a blind test, between a 1 and two piece body.

On many of Carvins two piece bodies you have have to look REALLY close to find the joining line. They are usually very well matched.

Exactly.

Plus, good luck finding ANY Carvin neck through model with a one-piece body. :wink:


LOL!!!

Now I want one, just so all that wood can be wasted! :twisted:

I was told a one-piece body was $100 upgrade, but on many of the Swamp Ash Carvin guitars (mine included) I would defy you to find the seam, if in fact there is one. I think there may be something to the resonance thing, but I feel it's primarily cosmetic if the joinery is done right. I wouldn't sweat a two-piece body if I were ordering a solid color.Image

I like the idea of a neck-thru with one piece body. I'd pay a premium for that option. :laughhard:

I bow to the most hilarious post EVER.

This is simply beyond description. I am utterly speechless at the complete and total master of this thing. Content, satire, .... I don't even know how to say it.

DUDE, that is TOTALLY HILARIOUS.

I've seen a single cut guitar that was carved out of one piece of wood. So I guess it is possible???

The price was 12,000ish...lol

Ok, so on the serious side I just ordered a 3 piece body (check out my thread in the waiting room :mrgreen:) on a neck-through. So that would be 2 wings, the neck, a laminate layer, and a top. 5? Anyway, on my existing neck through, I can literally FEEL if it's in tune. And that's not a one-piece body.

(And now, brace for the tone wood/neck through/laminate layers vs one-piece vs not-one-piece TONE, vs band context + pedals/effects, amp head, cab, speakers, cable length and room size/shape TONE debate).

Here are all the pros, and cons, listed in alphabetical order, between a one, and two piece body.

1). Minor aesthetic difference.
2).
3).
4).

And there you have it, folks.

I say screw it - just have the guitar painted white, spend the leftover dough on coke and you'll forget about the whole thing. :mrgreen:

My Gibson Explorer has a 3 piece hog body and it's got resonance to spare.

I'm a firm believer in tone wood, pups and amps matter as well, but wood is definitely part of the overall equation. I found this out first hand over the last several months when I have heard a C22B in an Alder body Bolt, a hog/maple top C66 and in my new swamp ash Bolt+. They are all the same body styles, all had floating trems and each one had a very different tone than the rest.

I have a Ash blank from Carvin, it's gonna be a PJ bass someday.

Anyways, if you look at it from either side, it totally looks like a one piece. If you look from the skinny side, you can see that in the middle the grain is slightly, very slightly off. It looks perfect though!

Resonance wise, it depends more on the slab of wood, than if it's two pieces in my opinion. :lol:

When I first laid eyes on my CS6, I was sure that it was a one piece body, just like my SH550. I had to look really closely to see that it was in fact two piece. Carvin does superb work, no bout a doubt it.

EDIT:

Come to think about it, my new SH65 will have nine different pieces of wood:

5 piece walnut with maple stripes neck
2 'hog back pieces
1 flamed maple top
1 ebony fingerboard

SH550
CS6
SH275
CT6
SC90

Did all guitars have the exact same electronics played through the exact same amp?

I tend to see wood as the last determining factor on 'tone.' It's certainly important, but not the most significant - at least not in an electric guitar. The guitar pickups and the amp will have a more dramatic effect on tone than anything else.

At times I hear friends saying they want to buy a new guitar to get a new tone. I tell them to update their existing guitar with different pickups, as well as updating the the amp with different speakers instead.

On acoustic guitars...well...that's a totally different story. But even so, I would say the shape of the body (big cavity vs thin narrow cavity), the type of bracing used under the top and the type of strings shape the tone more than anything else. The one exception I can think of is the Ovation Adamas. Those guitars are made almost entirely of fiber glass and composite materials, and that seems to make a significant difference.

In fact, personally, I have come to the point in which I mostly consider different wood options in a new guitar mostly because of aesthetics. But these conversations about 'tone woods' are like holy wars in music forums, LOL.
