    It looks the same..... but nicer!

    Im not sure what they did change, but I do like it.

    Peace

  3. there are lots of little changes that will make this production run blow away the pre-prod basses that are floating around EBay (which should NEVER have seen the market place).

    mahogony body should sweeten up the tone quite a bit too!!!

    i'm putting some finishing touches on the database this weekend. anxious to see finished product.

  4. Very very nice! The 2 little pointy things at the bottom add a nice touch!
     
  5. nice thing about this program is that i can change the wood texture maps really easily.

  9. Did you make those??

    In case you did.. That flame maple seems to reflect the light in a very realistic way.. is it just a raw bitmap or an edited material??
     
  10. luisnovelo:

    i modeled and textured them, yes.

    the flamed maple is a slightly modified bitmap. in 3D Studio MAX you can edit the RGB output, helps with colors that aren't quite right when applied in the material editor.
