Do different body shapes contribute to a difference in sound of the instrument?

December 11th, 2018

The sound of in instrument is not so much affected by its shape but a different construction can have a significant difference in sound. For example; a Jupiter body shape will not sound very different from a Halo body shape if all other aspects are equal (i.e. woods, ser-up, pickups, etc.). However, a solid body Jupiter will sound very different from a hollow body Jupiter even if all other aspects are equal.
