dpm99 Posted June 7, 2008 Report Share Posted June 7, 2008 Ok, by first try, I mean two versions of a first shape developed from maybe as many as fifty preliminary sketches. It's drawn to scale. One square equals one inch. What do you think? They were inspired by the Jazzmaster. Both are offset body styles. The only difference is that the first one has an extra half inch on the left horn. I've drawn in a Jazzmaster tremolo plate, but I'm considering a Bigsby as well. I also drew in the bridge and pickups. It's supposed to be just a little bit weird looking, ala old MIJs. The idea was to design something that could have come from the sixties or seventies. I don't know if I've been successful or not, but each sketch is getting better. So what do you think? Make a template, or back to the drawing board? Thanks for taking the time to look! First shape (longer horn): Second shape (shorter horn): Thanks again, Dave Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
