Hey guys, recently I've started planning some stuff on a guitar I'll build in the future. Right now I have the basic shape and stuff ready to mold into a AWESOME IDEA.

BUT

One thing is bugging me.

COLOUR

Help me decide! I've narowed it down to three but I still can't decide! ARGH!



Note: these were made with MS paint
#2

Yeah, I was think about balance but I really have no idea on how judge it lol. What things could I adjust to help it balance properly?


Oh, and I hate black. No offence, but it's not really to my taste. =/
#4
blue then,

the only way to sort out the balance would be to adjust where the strap buttons are and rout a compartment for a weight i guess

Horrible in what way?

Build quality was terrible, sounded aweful, the trem had all but given up as most of the moving parts were f***ed and it played like a shovel with strings.

It was loads better once I'd done the refret dont get me wrong but the laquer was really thick, the inlays had a massive amount of filler around them.

On the up side it had great upper fret access. Most of the things that were wrong with it could easily be avoided if you built your own though

Awe sh*t, I guess I'll have to rethink this completely. Unless there is any way to make it turn out good of course lol.

None of the above. Try black.

Did you even read what I said before?

No way, Like I said, these are all things that you can easily avoid coz your making it. Most of it was purely cosmetic and down to Gibsons sloppy finishing and quality control and the issue with the playability was because it'd never been maintained by the owner and played to hell and back.

Oh, okay then.

However, if I were to try and make it balance better would it pay off to do the routing for weights? Is any real way I'd know how many it would require?


Sorry if my questions are n00bish.

Yes. All I'm saying is those don't appeal to me on this guitar. I would say C given only these three.
#13
It balanced quite well on a strap coz the upper horn is at the 12th fret so its not gonna be that neck heavy.

Dont worry about it till its finished then you can always adjust its balance by where you put the strap buttons but I think you'll be ok so long as you dont use a swamp ash body and a rosewood neck or something. . . . . .

I voted for number 1...

the yellow wouldn't be bad if you tweaked the color a little either...

In my opinion, who cares if it's neck heavy? Throw on some strap locks and you'll learn to compensate for the tiny weight difference in like 20 minutes, if that. And if I had that, I would go for like a trans-green. You never see green guitars, and that thing screams for it.

I was thinking about that actually, but with that paint that turns a different colour in different lights. So the main colour would be green, but with blue bits in the light. I've seen that on some cars, does anyone know what it's called?

If i have to pick from those 3, I'm gonna go with #1.
BUT- i think rust-colored would look sweet. Like a good brownish-orange.
