Well i'm designing my guitar <3 and was wondering what you guys think. I'm probably going to order it from a custom shop because it's a neck-thru and i want it to be perfect [the actual reason is that i suck ]



Well it's still a work in progress. and it's kind of obvious that i was inspire by Jackson Kelly, ESP Axxion (disc.) and BC Rich Stealth.

Looking for your honest opinion complements are preferred =)
I still need to come up with an inlay idea for the 12th fret and a headstock shape.

Be nice =)

Youre gonna need to use some seriously heavy wood, because if you plan on having it to scale, its gonna have some neck dive

my honest opinion is that you should build it, the only reason you suck is because you have no experience, and your not going to get better if you keep offloading projects to custom shops.

If your not building it this should be in the EG board

Is there anyway i can keep the basic shape and avoid the heavy wood ?

Ummm, add mass in any way possible, or make headless


OR try experimenting with different strap pin positioning, maybe that might work.

26 frets? Watch your scaling. You will need a bit more width at the narrowest part of the body or you'll have no wing to attach to the neck-thru. The lower horn looks too fragile too, but an interesting design with a few improvements.
