  3. oh my, you're a very good 3d modeler, are you a pro? I've tried to use 3d studio max too and with some small success, but nothing nearly as nice as yours!!

    btw, ligtwave pickup huh, I thought they don't sell those privately? you got some inside connection? :D
     
  4. Nevermind, I just realized it is a Zon.
    stupid me. :p

    yes. i use Pro/Engineer for all my modeling. 3D Studio MAX for rendering and animation.

    Nope. Not a Zon.

    yes, Lightwave pickups. You're close.

    Nah, not quite. . .Tune and Ibanez popped into my head, but I don't think it's either of those. Wonder what "MARK" is supposed to clue us into. . .

    Looks good indeed, whatever it is.

    Hmm, now I'm confused.
     
  12. oh I see, so you do have inside connection for those lightwaves? Yes or NO will do :D

    I'm acutally a novel I-DEAS user. Well, I've used it for about a year, desinging a new type of rotary pump, and I've always want to spend some time to make guitars with I-DEAS. The only problem was that I only have powerful computer to use at school, which really limit the time I can have to sit down and model a nice bass.

    just talked to the builder today.

    i didn't COMPLETELY design these things...i helped troubleshoot some prototype issues with the aid of my 3D CAD ability.

    they have 24 ready to ship in the next week or so.

    he knows i've had my finger on the trigger for some time now.

    he'll be sending me some finished PICS tonight...hopefully.

    the builder and pricepoint will suprise many.

    HAND OVER MOUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. he's my lame ass attempt to draw my old Yamaha bass, all done on 3Dstudio max, so I threw all the acurrate measurement out the window.

    Tommy Gunz...WOW, excellent work in MAX.

    MAX isn't known for its ease of modeling.

    i'm definitely impressed. GORGEOUS!


    and miss out on the fun?

    My first instinct is Read customs, just from first glance. Whatever it is it looks gorgeous. I am loving the looks of those monorail bridge systems.

    er, uh, well;
    dang they look good!
    where is the signature f-hole? Seems like it'd be appropriate here...

    everybody is getting warmer, warmer...
