  1. Voted for "Build #6" - every detail in this guitar is insane.
  2. Presenting Imago Bane Specs: Body - sapele+cherry (top) Neck - 3pcs mahogany Freatboard - bookmatched wenge Tuners - sperzel Pickups - SH-6+Golden Age Build topic More photos: http://i493.photobucket.com/albums/rr295/MrButtmann/Bane/22.jpg http://i493.photobucket.com/albums/rr295/MrButtmann/Bane/6.jpg http://i493.photobucket.com/albums/rr295/MrButtmann/Bane/7.jpg http://i493.photobucket.com/albums/rr295/MrButtmann/Bane/10.jpg
  3. Thanks everybody for comments! Of course it's not "my" shape. I just found a template in the shop: It seemed to me very comfortable so i decided to use it.
  4. So 2 months ago i've got an opportunity to finish the guitar. I painted it white and this time everything was great. The guitar is very light and easy to play and the sound is well balanced with nice sustain. Specs: Body - sapele+cherry (top) Neck - 3pcs mahogany Freatboard - bookmatched wenge Tuners - sperzel Pickups - SH-6+Golden Age Here are the photos: http://i493.photobucket.com/albums/rr295/MrButtmann/Bane/22.jpg http://i493.photobucket.com/albums/rr295/MrButtmann/Bane/6.jpg http://i493.photobucket.com/albums/rr295/MrButtmann/Bane/7.jpg http://i493.photob
  5. It was the time of finishing the guitar. I decided to stain to with blue and then make whole guitar plain blue with transparent top. Here are the only photos i have (sorry for bad quality): After finishing the guitar i had troubles again: 1. Unfortunately i've made a mistake during mixing of lacquer so the finish was soft 2. I've made a mistake with bridge humbucker position - it was too close to the bridge. So i decided to sand the guitar. Then i glued wood block in humbucker cavity and rerouted it.
  6. But then i thought again and understood that it would be a crime to have this body with very nice neck. So for the 3rd time i decided to change body design but with new wood (not using old body). Result: Inlay work: Then i glued the neck and carved neck and body
  7. But the i saw Leviathan guitar on this forum (http://www.lgmguitars.com/guitars/leviathan/) and thought that it's better two have this design I absolutely forgot that i made cavities in the body and decided to reshape it to Leviathan. Here are the results: As you can see there are many holes on the side of the guitar which i glued with scrap wood (and you can see scrap wood on the horn) Of course i've decided to make suited headstock! So finally i had this as a result:
  8. Hey guys! I haven't been here for a long time had a lot of work and wasn't able to make any guitar. Fortunately couple of months ago i had an opportunity to finish my 3 years old build. This build is not usual like "ideas->photoshop drawing->building" and i want to tell the story. Three years ago i decided to build copy of ESP Horizon guitar from the wood that is not sorry. So for body i took mahogany and cherry (top and back). I decided to make cavities under the top as you can see on the photo. As for neck - i made 3pcs mahogany neck blank and bookmathed wenge fr
  9. I chose between Metalhead and guitarnut. And finally Metalhead got my vote,i really like the inlay! Though i think the guitar could be better with another finish Guitarnut - your guitar is very interesting and despite the original finish it looks integral.
  10. Gecko Body Sapele back Makore top White binding Neck 1-piece Sapele set neck Indian rosewood fingerboard 2-way truss rod Gecko inlay Hardware/electonics Gotoh tune-o-matic bridge Gotoh tailpiece Sperzel tuners Knobs with abalone Seymour Duncan SH4 (bridge) and SH2 (neck) Finish Nitro lacquer finish More: 1 2 3 4 Building process here...
  11. There is absolutely no problem here - just add the top thickness in this place (here). In other words you have to make the "body part" of the neck thinner (and don't forget about the angle between fingerboad surface and body surface, it differs depending on bridge type).
  12. Nice shape and very nice top wood. But yes, it looks like pregnant woman on that photo
  13. Forgot to mention, the one thing i found wrong is that the strings are too high above the freatboard and T-O-M don't have any room to be lower... (hope i am mistaking). http://www.devansdesign.com/files/semiholl...mihollowTop.jpg
  14. My vote is for Dave too - very nice designed and built guitar!
  15. I voted for Simo's MK-5 - awesome build. Watched it from the beginning and i'm really impressed with choice of wood and shape. Also i'd like to mention Christmas Miracle - cool design but a bit rough perfomance; SA Auditorium acoustic - very nice build, original design and wood choice; Nova neck through - nice, simple and original and i like the pickups too;
