it didn't attract me particularly; it wasn't on the revolutionary side (very standard-ish shape). i think it'd look good in dark cherry with P90s though.

yeah I know what you mean, but most guitars I see that are "revolutionary" look cr@p in my opinion :lol: Dark cherry was the colour I had in mind, but I dont think P90s will work very well in it seeing as it will probably be my metal guitar  :P

you have a good point with the "revolutionary" guitars looking cr@p! :P hehe, okay, P90's was a bad idea. has anyone got any experiences of trying to play metal with P90s? Has anyone ever been stuck in a situation where they have the totally wrong equipment for what they were trying to play? i especially wanna hear stories of people playing a black metal show and accidently packing their tele.

I bet it could still be done, it just wouldnt look the part in a black metal band  :lol: I have another question about woods. Is 2pc a good or bad idea? The only body blanks I think I can get are 2pc.

Cheers

I don't know. I didnt mind that record he did with Elton John, though.

I just wanted to chip in and say about the 'wrong' guitars, well I always thought Tom Morello got more than enough power for his rap/metal groove thing with just his tele.

Nice guitar man, we want to see photos when its done!

hahaha was that intentional? If not, I meant 2 piece :lol: I cant wait till its done either! I might make the horns a tad more pointy as I really want a jackson style headstock for it, and I dont think it'll suit it at the minute, heres a "photoshop" of it with a jackson neck haha

WOW, finally someone as bad and un-devoted to photoshop as I! thank the lord. Still looks odd to me, i've gotta say, i still associate the shape in my mind with the more vintage variety of guitars. (kinda cross between LP junior, alembic tribute)

yeah I know what you mean, I cant be arsed to learn proper photoshop, MS Paint is good enough for me  :lol: I've kinda redesigned the upper horns now, it doesnt look so "stratty" now, I actually prefer it, its not so PRS-ish now. Watch'all think?

Won't you need to angle the tailpiece more?  Most guitars with a wrap around have it angled so it is further from the neck at the bass end.

Other than that, go fo it.  Have you worked out the thickness yet?  I don't think 2 piece is a problem as long as you get the joint OK.  Fender used to do 5 piece guitars in the 70's (3 pieces on the back and 2 at the front).

If you are spraying it a solid colour, no one will know.  You can always vaneer it if it bothers you.
So many pickups, so little time

yeah the tailpiece thing was just a quick drawing, I would sort it out properly when I actually got round to it. Its probably gonna be the same thickness as my LP, but if I find a spokeshave I might contour it for comfort. I was actually thinkin about string thru earlier, it might look cooler  :lol:

So, normally, do 2pc bodies come with the pieces separate? That will really piss me off if they do, because I dont have the right clamps etc to get a decent joint!
