Think everybody that didn't like the design was very respecfull to it due to you've build it

i hope it wasnt just that... i value honest opinions

i know on sevenstring some people didnt like it and some suggested i was copying something else :)  made me laugh because as far as i am aware this is probably my most original design and i still get people saying i copied something which just proves there is no such thing as an original idea in guitar design. Roo and I talked about warmoth Z's and SG's when designing this, everything else was from development of those shapes

What I like about it - and bear in mind it's not for me - is that, in all the pics I've seen, it looks like a "classic guitar" to me.

There's some very classy looking guitars getting posted around here, but most of them pass me by, or I like bits of them, or I like the wood, the colour or something. But most of them are in my "fair enough, won't catch on though" category (this is a very personal category here, PRSs, pointy headstock metal guitars, all manner of successful stuff, they all fall into it - so obviously they've caught on with someone :lol:)

And then there's this "classic guitar" category - the iconic ones for me "hey it's a tele, a strat, an LP, an SG, a Corvette, a Junior, etc, etc"

For some reason the Roo geetar finds itself in that category whenever I see it - I just accept it. Maybe it's cos I'm used to seeing it in Roo's avatar all the time, maybe not, I don't know. Mebbe if I saw it in the flesh I wouldn't think that at all? I dunno...

But if that's what you've managed to do - it might explain why people think you've copied something else. When it's right, it's right, and it seems familiar...

Happens with songs as well - Eg Paul McCartney was convinced he'd ripped off something when he came up with the melody and structure for Yesterday. It just sounds so familiar when you first hear it. It's not because it's a copy of something, it's because it's good...


....I tried really hard, but I couldn't come up with a Cliff Richard reference/comparison to compliment this beast - but I've managed to link it to a telecaster and to a Paul McCartney song, so I reckon that's enough for a post in "Roobaiting" :lol:

Except perhaps the flood of hate I give on Mctw@t/The Beatles (yeah cheers for that Andy lol)

I meant in a good way, as it's your build I would say "that's not my  way" or "I don't like the design" instead of a "it's made to be shoven into the owner's arse" if it was a fender/gibby/whatever... (mind the typical Roo's comment) :lol:

In deed, as I said on the topic of the guitar, I'm not sure if I like or not, first time I saw it I thought it was damn ugly, now it's kind OK :)

So Roo, if you buy any guitar off the shelf, you'll listen some gay-jokes, even if it's the most beautifull guitar in the world :lol:

Cheers for the resurrection Matt. Of all the threads I have started this one is quite probably my favourite!

Is La Cabronita yours?
I think I hate being indecisive.
