EDIT:This has probably been done before, with no success, but hopefully you all will trust that if you deliver what is needed, the world will see one of the most badass guitars

For the past few years I have been designing and building electric guitars. Not just little pussy modifications, but from scratch, and I sell them to local stores -i.e Foxtone, and I actually get paid a fair amount of money.
The point is, I've come to the stage of my most recent project as to what I should have painted/inlayed/airbrushed onto the body/headstock.
I am at a loss of ideas as to what should be put on there, so, i come to the ever so helpful Pit to design it for me...or at least throw out some ideas as to what could be done with the currently bland guitar.
If people are interested in this at all, the person with the "winning" idea/design could have the option to own this guitar.

I'm not meaning for this to be a competition, or advertisement. Think of it sort of like the UG shirt thread.
I'm expecting the typical "penis", "pedobear" response, but I would like this to be a little serious too.
If this gets to be a topic of interest, i will post pictures of the guitar in making. For now, here is my sort of "design overview" from PS.
Changes can be made!
Here is the basic body shape. The only set things on the guitar that must remain are-
the neck, floating trem, and monkey grip.


So what would The Pit like to see on the headstock and body?

I guess abstract art would look great on the body. Like wave patterns and other awe-inspired works. There's a ton of stuff on deviantart but i guess you would have to give those artists a cut of the profits...

i shall return in due time with goodies to add to the guitar.

In the meantime you can remove that handle on the body. i hate those.

I +1 losing the hole, and putting a Zero Resistance floyd in that biatch. Also make the wiring look good, and put a clear pick guard on.

+1 to the following stuff as well :


-Horns more rounded
-Roland GK-20 pickup
-Push pull pots
-abstract liek finish

IMO, round off the horns, add a contour, paint white, black/dark mirrored pickguard, slap an ironic or witty sticker on it, and you're good to go!

I'd see that abstract (psychedelic) art idea in red, or the body black with an infamous flame effect printed on top, with the Ferrari logo at the bottom, preferebly embossed like the pickguard.

EDIT: I take that back. Use the first finish qsceszxdwa suggested.

Keep the headstock the same shape, only make it longer if possible. Katana-like.

Another idea would be to take red china ink and put in a few chinese letters on there. Forget the Ferrari sign, though, and the finish would be probably black. Would go well with the Katana headstock.

EDIT:

Or turn it into a bass!!!

Just needed to slap (no pun intended) in a joke.
You are now using UG Black.
You are now using UG Classic.

Sorry, it's kind of late, are we supposed to change the shape of the guitar or not?

Yeah, I wanna know too. Seriously, if you're considering other shapes, you ought to make that Mockingman or whatever it was someone made a while back.

Quote by dr.rock666
the shape can be changed, i guess.
i have this body set, but i can carve/purchase another body type quite easily.


I'd like to see it with a Les Paul or Gretsch body.

Lose the monkey grip. It's impractical and an eyesore.

The headstock and inlays are quite nice.

something vaguely like that, except with better colors and smoother transitions, as i'm crap with photoshop. I dunno if it'd work with the pickguard, either.

Make it all out of bones of your defeated enemies. Or dig graves.

Make it steampunk.

And make the 12th inlay different, it's probably only me, but I judge almost everything from the 12th...
