  1. I guess it's about time this finally entered the GOTM, but its finally completed, so here it goes: First off, though I designed this top to bottom I gotta give credit to luthier Vadim Pashin and the rest of the Shamray staff for the work that went into this. The binding was a real pain but hey, it got done. Name: "Sentinel V" on here and through the design process / officially "CS#1986 Babiak Custom" Construction Method: Neck-thru Neck: Maple (hard rock maple) Neck features: Standard 3-piece (with slightly angled headstock) Fretboard: Ebony, compound radius Frets: 24 – Sintoms "6
  2. great build; a lot like a current rg-style im working the design on congrats, keep up the good work
  3. thats my fault. the guy i had do the rendering did that (no following of contours near neck). the painter just used the reference picture and did it as-is to what i submitted it was afterward that i noticed this, but too late at that point to go "hey, start over and make sure the bursting follows better...." lol, it was already over schedule by several months! (and it woulda cost me....)
  4. ah yeah. scrapped the maple top after i scrapped that paint job. i was unsure if i wanted to go with something so extreme, started toying with more traditional burst and ended up with what i did.
  5. DONE!!!! PHOTOBUCKET: http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y290/Mat_...y%20Custom%20V/ http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y290/Mat_...1986_8461-1.jpg http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y290/Mat_...1986_8463-1.jpg http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y290/Mat_...S-1986_8459.jpg
  6. yeah, you definitely didn't make that neck. you can barely route the control cavity but try to take credit for the dot inlays and perfectly sanded neck profile? puh-leez question: did you cut the body entirely freehand?
  7. don't really like the body. doesn't really come off as original simply because it's so impractical and lacking any real design forethought. you could in theory make any random shape and call it "original" otherwise, but it doesn't make it original shape if it simply doesn't work.
  8. figure someone out there might be wondering how this is turning out.... http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y290/Mat_/CS-1986_8292.jpg http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y290/Mat_/CS-1986_8297.jpg http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y290/Mat_/CS-1986_8289.jpg

  11. Why do people always say this?natural wood on unfigured mahogany just is the worst aesthetic cmbination ever...and solid paint can kick major ass. I just went through all of the pics and I must say I really like what you have going on there...hope it comes out well.I also just noticed it is being done by shamray guitars.I always wondered about those. haha, agreed. the mahogany on the back did look killer though, especially on the neck joint. but yeah, EVERYONE says that but solid colors can look great too, all depends on application.
