Hey, everyone!

I want to know some more ideas for unique guitars, my brain is running dry here. Be sure to post pics. Ideas can be lost is translation, so just saying your idea doesnt quite work as well as showing it.

First things first, What do you think of my latest idea:




Body-Maple (For a nice bright sound)
Neck-Mahogany
Rosewood fretboard
22 frets
Rectangle Inlays
2 EMG select mini-humbucking pickups.
Tune-o-matic bridge and Bigsby model B5 tremelo
1 volume 1 tone (I will most likely put a 3-way switch on, too)
And all the love and care that hand crafting can offer.

Well If you remove the bigsby, and paint like a violin (dark). It would would be epic, also semi-hollow ftw.

I thaught of that, but the buyer wanted a light color. Also, I'm trying to use as much of this old '60 style SG thats been laying out in the shop as I can. The neck, bridge, tremelo, and input jack are from the SG.

I'd **** that iolin guitar.

Give it 24 frets, a thin C-shaped neck semi hollow it, and deepen the cutaway and I'd make it my girlfriend.

I just took a look at it. For a fist guitar it looks li,e you did a pretty good job. Finish and design look even and all that jazz.

Let us know when pics/vids are available

I play a lot of stuff. Ranging from jazz to All That Remains.

I would totally plan on buying one, but I would imagine the price would be close to over $1000. I would also discuss this via PM... for your sake.

Hahaaa,
Prices go crazy when you figure out what some people are willing to pay.

Hey dude just as a warning, That link in your sig comes really close to advertising; I'd talk to a mod or remove it.

BTW, that guitar looks great...

As far as material goes, a granite guitar would be awesome (although I doubt it would resonate well) and one with glass frets might also be cool just to see how they would sound.

I've played one that was on display in a guitar center somewhere in upstate New York.
Limestone, not granite. Looked cool,
heavy as ****, but sounded fine.

And glass frets would be a bad idea,
Bending or grinding strings against them might splinter the glass.
Bad for the fingers :]

Looks like 2 balls, and a...uhm...yah..

I'd really like the finished version of your models though. Specially the buster sword.
#37
These are all just suggestions,
I won't render them unless I'm actualy going to make them.

And, yeah, it kind of does look like a wangcaster. Hahaa

You could recreate the wangcaster.

Anyway, I recommend looking at all of Veillantif's ideas from this thread.

Especially the Mockingman.

How hard would it be for you to make the violin guitar a double cut?
To be honest, I'm kind of curious as to how it would look.

But geeze there are cool. Did you take classes for Fireworks or just pick it up?
