    Hi,
    I know this is the DB corner but thought
    you could bare with my first attempt of making
    a bass in photoshop...
    It´s easier to make a TB in PS than a DB...
    Still need to practise IRL on the DB and in PS.

    Hope you like it,
    best

    Not bad. I haven't fooled with PS in a few years. The shading and textures you used are good.

    All of your abbreviating is a bit exhausting, but I suppose I'd be too tired to type after that project as well. It looks very good.
     
  4. Very cool, but how about oval tuners like on my 1966 Jazz bass?
    ;)

    Hi Mike :)
    This is a converted one with Bartolini
    pick ups ;-) and the oval tuners were replaced...

    Have you given my trade suggestion any more thoughts ? The upright is valued at ca
    7500 usd...

    ps, this is my first attempt with Photoshop
    to make a bass...next time I will try to make a complete Jazz Bass and maybe after that an
    upright.

    kind regards

  6. Looks great! What is that "nut" thing "zero" fret?
     
  7. Hi Al,
    you have hawkeyes ;-)
    I was expecting that someone would react but sooner...

    The scan was made for a competition in
    Photoshop and we were asked to make a complete instrument. This was my first try to make a few parts and I started to make the complete freetboard
    and noticed to late the zero freet...

    Kind regards,
    Christian
