davee5 Posted September 18, 2006 Report Share Posted September 18, 2006 I believe I have finally nailed the design for my first guitar. I've got my work cut out for me, but I'm confident this will be great. Wanted to share and get some final feedback from the crowd. First suggested here. The final design has pushed back the string ferrules to give the right break angle over the TOM, the neck pocket is set to give good action w/ room for TOM adjustability without requiring a angled neck pocket, and everything EVERYTHING is to scale and modeled correctly in 3D (hooray for CAD, saved me a lot of headaches to be sure). I even modeled the small knot in the flamed-koa top-plate I'm using to keep it away from the edges and fits right in the waist while finishing the layout. So, what's the verdict? Time to get some templates laser-cut and start making chips? It's still easy to make changes, such is the beauty of computer modeling, so don't hold back. -Dave Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
