avengers63 Posted February 26, 2009 Report Share Posted February 26, 2009 I'm going to take apart the Tulip, pictured above. It doesn't balance well and I just don't like it as much as I thought I would. I'll be keeping the neck for some undecided use later, but the pup, bridge, pit, and jack are all going somewhere else. I have an Epiphone neck, maple/maple with an explorer headstock that I'll be using on this project. I'm thinking to angle the pup in the gunslinger position. Here's the list of templates I have: PRS, Les Paul, SG, Tele, Carvin Strat, Firebird, Flying V, Jackson V, 335 I could also make a close resemblance of something else by hand. Remembering that it's an explorer headstock, a single motherbucker, and a wrap-around tailpiece, I'm leaning a little towards the flying V or something completely fabricated and off the wall, like the Gibson Corvus. Also, should I go for wood porn, paint it, or some combo? I currently have mahogany, ash, goncalo alves, sapele, and walnut that could be used for the body. I have others that could be a top. Tell me what to do. Consider this to be design by committee. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
