John Abbett Posted January 6, 2009 Report Share Posted January 6, 2009 Hi guys. I've built a few copies from plans on the net. I know they violate copywrite. Selling them would certainly be bad. I did it so I could learn how to do standard builds and what works and doesn't. But as I'm looking at building my own designs, I find that the hollowbodies that I want to make all look similar to the 335 or single cutaways. Does anyone know the rules for not violating copywrite? If I take a set of plans and modify them, does that violate copywrite? Do I have to start with a blank sheet and draw something up so I'm not using anything from anyone else? Designing my own headstock is a start, and the body shapes I like are slightly smaller then the standard 335.. Does using a Gibson fingerboard length make a diffrerence? I'm not a Fender guy, but I see a lot of guitars out there that have basically the same rought shape. Ibanez espeically. How do they get away with being so simliar to Fender? Anyway, does anyone have any input on this? -John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
