Well, sort of. I thought it'd be a neat resource to pool everybody's custom builds into one thread for new luthiers (like myself) or curious on-lookers (me too!). So post links to your threads and I'll edit them into this one!

^Yeah, what do you want? I kind of want to keep the luthiers name, and guitar type in the title so it's easy for people to remember/access though

EDIT: I had no idea there were this many builds on UG until I started hunting them down! Keep em coming!

I would want a custom rig.

For the body,a cross between an SG and a Jaguar. The body would have a graphic of an underwater fortress in the middle of a huge battle. With knights on seahorses and mer-people with spears made of iron, and shields of hardened coral. This image would be carried on (uninterrupted) over the pickguard and pickups.

For the neck, the Epiphone SG set-neck in a kind of blackish blue swirl color, with gold trident in-lays, with a sick-looking trident jutting out the top of the headstock. I would also want an anchor-chain wrapped around the trident a few times, and then hanging off the trident by about 6in.

The pots and PU switch would be in the usual place, but painted to blen in with the scene.

The input chord, would also be like a chain.


Pretty Awesome huh?

Pretty Expensive too.

For the guitar, how much would it be?

High hundreds, or a few thousand?


Sorry, I don't have a picture. I kind of just thought up spurt of the moment. Just kinda try to visualize it.

Everyone post please with suggestions, tips, etc.

Thanks.

Great Idea IMO.

Though I feel like a loser compared to the other builds.

Oh well, next one (maybe) will turn out better.
