Reading Mike Neer's interview with Lee Jeffries these were referred to as the “trailer park model”–the 507 LINK: https://tinyurl.com/yaqkoqup and I didn't really understand it until I opened it up and it all made sense per the pics. Thin sheets of plywood bound with aluminum trim. I opened it to follow the recommendation for putting in foam to stop feedback. I wasn't having that problem yet...but what was driving me crazy was the resonance making the strings on the other necks ring...constantly.

So I layered in about a pound and a half of under-carpet foam sheets and score!!! My trailer park marriage has been saved!
