I am going to make a guitar for my mate and i have been messing around with photoshop coming up with a design.

Here it is:


what do you think?

It lacks cohesion. The color scheme is scattered and it's hard to focus on one part of the guitar. The proportions are a little goofy. I would make the cut-away more scooped (that's just me).

I think the biggest issue is the color scheme. The pin-stripe seems like an afterthought and the alternating red/black color pattern is annoying at best.

Also, the pick up selector seems a bit too close to the strumming area for my taste. I'd consider moving it.

You could use some help with Photoshop, too, but that's a different story.
i like progressive rock

Too much going on, and the humbucker could probably go without the chrome.
#5
looks ugly IMHO, i would scrap that. also, it looks like ESP's version of the LP, (body shape)

i honestly cant find anything i like about that guitar. i especially hate the inlays on the fretboard

also the bridge design doesnt make sense whatsoever. you have a tele bridge, but the strings go past it and then thru the body?

Bridge makes no sense, the cutaway could go out a little bit more, the maple fingerboard and those inlays doesn't look good maybe some exotic wood like cocobolo or something which is darker but not too dark so you can see the black well still, you should design you own headstock the strat headstock doesn't fit. I'd do something a little pointy to match the cutaway. It just needs a little bit more work but it's a nice design and could make a great guitar with a couple changes.

change the red body binding to white, replace the tele bridge with a tune-o-matic, change the inlays to MOP traps (or something else cool looking you can come up with), change the headstock. the strat headstock doesn't look too good on an LP style body. just some suggestions.

I have had a rethink and changed the design. only slightly though.

the new design is a lot better than the old one but i'd still change the headstock i'd go for a 3x3 headstock something like a PRS

I think after this relentless adding for the last 10 mins, that Dan is the coolest looking. Goddamn welsh people and my great etc etc etc etc etc granddad is welsh.

change that bridge!!! also I've never seen a guitar with a single coil bridge and then a humbucker neck. interesting

I liked it the way it was personally.

I liked the way you did alternating inlays, but the pickups and knob placement needs work.
Keep at it!
I don't remember where I was,
When I realized life was a game.
The more seriously I took things,
The harder the rules became.

I'd say maybe cut the headstock to be a bit more angular
And a string through tele bridge like that... Very interesting, but I'm not sure where you can get them. Maybe add some carve to it, too
Might not be half bad

Anyone else see the irony in smashing a guitar that says "peace and love" ?
