Keep the second design but make a RG or Gibson SG style lower horn.

i'd say make the horn thicker, it looks weird being so thin.

that 'quarter-pipe' cut feels really out of place IMO.

It's probably the program/possibly the picture I used to outline the shape of a LP. I might not have traced the lines properly, or it was just angled funny in the picture. Or, worse yet, it's angled funny on my Epi LP... Not that it really matters in the Computer design. I'm going with a wraparound bridge, btw.

For the guy who said the horn seems a bit thin - I actually made it thicker from design 2 to design 3. Not much, but thicker. I thought it was too thin as well.

For whoever said that I should do an RG or SG horn - I don't think it'd go too well, TBH. I planned the cutout and the horn to be ROUGHLY parallel in the side-on view, which someone has posted for us. Look at the top side of the cutout tail, and then the bottom side of the horn, and they're almost there.

Deftonesordie - I agree.

lp_std: +1

Androidred0100: It's like a more br00tal version of mine :P - That's what you should stick the RG horn on!


Lurcher: Thank you. I had no idea. Because I'm a noob. I will now go lessen the depth of the tail split.


MrDimmu - all you had to do was request a side-on shot! I coulda just rotated it! Thanks though

I'm likin the ideas here!

The second one was probably the best idea. It looked much smoother than the others (though it did almost look exactly like a Corvus)

DO IT!

Design 3, please, with a little less to the split tail (i.e. not so close to the bridge)

Side note - probably ordering wood and bridge tomorrow from eBay, as well as finalizing my template. It will be design 3 with a little less split tail after whoever's suggestion that it would weaken the guitar too much.

Ha ha, yeah for real. An RG horn would be epic. I might mock that up just for kicks.

Funny thing is I really did do my absolute best to keep it as close to the mix between #2 and #3 as posible. The only thing that's different really is the tailpiece cutaway since someone said it was a problem.

Anyway, good luck. I shall definitely be keeping an eye out on this one

Thanks man. I'm glad to see I've started drumming up some support. Kinda pumped too... anxious and nervous a little maybe.

An update, jam packed with surprises and pictures to come a little later tonight:

Today, I bought the wood I need for the body and the neck.

Here's what the guitar will finally be made of:

Two piece Padauk (zomg! Surprise!) body.
Three laminate neck(another surprise! I wasn't going to make a neck!): Cherry/Cocobolo/Cherry

The wood is fairly nice too, so I might be going with a clear lacquer finish.
