    hey, so I sat down and started to draw for about 4 hours and I came up with some designs.

    oh, btw, my company (when I start it) will be called No KoR (readit backwards and you'll understand the symbol and whatnot.)

    Thanks, hope you guys like them, feel free to use them as well.

    Awesome! Each one of those kicks the ass of my designs - I'm loving the one on the second page in the bottom right... Great stuff!

    thanks! I'm really glad you like them, I'm actually working on a few more right now, I just finished one (this one actually is my design) and some more.

    thanks again.

  4. The one on the 2nd page bottom right looks like an old Guild Burnside headless.

    Too pointy for my liking. The top right on the second page looks exactly like a Lecompte, though, so I definately wouldn't use that one if you are going for originality points :-\.

    I know, it looks too much like his bass, but then again, that's what I based it off of, so don't worry about me using that one.

    more soon
     
  8. I'm all for interesting design, but as far as shapes go, some of them are seriously beyond symettrical. I guess that's the point, but to what end is all I'm sayin.

    Not gettin on ya, just flesh them out a bit more.

    The body shapes aren't my thing, but you're getting on something!

    I'm currently working on some more right now, I'm trying to get some pointy ones, so smooth ones, and maybe a few abstract ones :p

    I sure will, I'm working on something right now inspired by ritter, and something inspired by warwick.

  14. Well, the top one is a Celinder J (judging by the body shape being a Jazz, and the bridge looking like a Celinder) so I'd opt against making that one.
