I have some spare guitar hardware lying around and need something to wrench on for awhile. I've always like the Jackson King Vs and their ilk, but I came up with something better while prototyping... The Goomba-V.



My wife thinks it's the most retarded thing I've ever thought of, but I think the pwn would be strong with this one.

*edit: I'd go for a 3x3 headstock if I ever did get stupid enough to build it.

That's ridiculously awesome.

I would kill for that thing.

BUILD IT NOW.

wow. that looks amazing hahaha. id play it. it would probably be hard, but i think it would be better if the inlays were the little spikey dudes that drop from the clouds

I LOVE IT!!! Haha, you must build it! Its too epic not to do. Your wife is right, but it still kicks ass. I second the coin inlay idea.

How about this, I'll build my V first, then do a Goomba-V if a super cheap neck and some pickups come along (I have the tuners, bridge, knobs, and other misc. hardware already.)

Is there any uber-cheap wood one can find at say.. Home Depot that could be cut into a guitar body? I'll keep this as my back-burner project and tinker with stuff as I have time.
#24
i admit, at least the dude with the inlays had a good idea :P

but could you seriously play that on stage lol?

Quote by Guerrilla Radio
That is amazing.

I vote that you build it.



If you build it, they will come....
#27
Shape the headstock like some other mario-themed thing/charater, and I'll vote for build.

The inlays would be very sweet. If/when I build this beast it's probably going to be using a salvaged neck so I'd have to pop the old inlays out. I like the coin idea.

Who knows, maybe I'll have enough woodworking stuff by the time I get to it to do my own neck.
#29
Awesome idea. Now go do it!

...and I agree about the coin idea. Perhaps try to make them "animated" (meaning the coins will represent a frame of the rotating animation as you go further down the neck.)

The head stock would look better 3 a side sorta thing...

maybe even another goomba?

If you dont build it
an angry mob of goombas will attack

btw, i third the coin inlay idea

you could make inlays of different Mario bad guys, and have bowser of something at the 12th.
Also, Do you think you'd get enough acess for >24 frets?

edit: Or, you could just inlay goombas walking down the nesk.
