i just tried to put my rosewood side into a pvc water pipe closed it with aluminium file and send steam into it with a flexipipe

removed it hot and steamy and pressed in into the side form

it was fantastic

i just wanted to know if steaming will have any adverse effect on sound --- the sides became plastic in ten minutes of steaming

i believe boat builders bend three inch thick wood

my question i prefer it this way willl it affect the sound quality

From what I understand the sides of a guitar are like the sides of a drum- all they do is hold the box together and have nothing to do with sound with the exception that sound may bounce around in side the box -- I stand corrected if this comment is not true..... Peace, Donald
