You just posted this in another thread, somewhere totally different... This makes no sense, and it has been reported for spam.

To Avenger, why can't you use photobucket?

what i've noticed is that on cleans the EMG 85 sounds AMAZING
so if you want a third pickup as an option, definitely look into it

Don't do a cherry wood body, go with the mahoghany.

The reason the iceman is such a sweet guitar, is it's basically an odd shaped, more sleek les paul. I have an IC400, and noticed the stock pickups are kind of shitty, so I put some nice dimarzio PAF pickups in it, and that made the tone a million times better.

So, seriously, go with mahogany body and PAF pickups. If you really want to have the cherry wood body, just put real actives in it, EMG 81 and 85 are always good.

^ Like, is just doesn't work? Does the download stop or what?

You could email them to someone here at UG and we could post them for you. I would do it if you want.

when I chose a file, it just dont download at all, what I am making wrong ?
#15

the plan


the photoshop version, but the neck will look a little darker, the pickup mounting will be black, and the knobs too


and I worked the shape to make it more unique.. that's what I think it would look like ( i know its not an iceman annymore, but I kinf of like it alot )

that sounds good, where do you live in Quebec, if you live in Montreal you can go at Steve's music store that's where I got all the parts for my build(pots, pickups, bridge etc.) and you don't have to pay for shipping

thanck you, I think I will have to go see... or call one day

Thanck you for the desing I figure it would be finished by the middle of January, because I will do most of the work in the hollidays.

I got the wood for the body, and I will buy the neck tommorow ( yeah I buy it, it's still my first guitar, so I dont want to mess up the neck. )
#22
WOW!

You certainly are an artist. Those are some awesome drawings man.

Also, that design should easy to do, it will only require a one layer stencil.

why is the cherry wood bad for guitars ?

i think it's too soft, and the tension from the strings may rip the bridge out of the body.

They made early Teles out of pine... that is a softwood. Cherry is harder, isn't it?

Aha.

Ahahaha.




Man you win epic lulz, that was funny. I'm not really sure why... but dude!

Yeah I think cherry would work fine, it is a hardwood, that's all you need for a body.

We'll wait for LP Addict.

Indeed .

I though my dad had a Cherry desk.

It was about 3 feet by 8 feet by 2 inches. Perfect for a whack of guitars. I was so stoked.

Nope, its MDF.

I was mad haha.
