  1. I've finally completed these two. I'm going to make a five string version of the one on the right next.

    I really like the single cut model. It's a classic shape while still looking modern. Few shapes pull that off well. The pickguard shape is awesome aswell.
     
  3. Thanks. The pickguard is what my logo was adapted from. It's supposed to be a lower case "g".
     
  4. Jamie, you ROCK!
    love them both.

    Jaime, nice work. That singlecut is cool. Could you post a pic of the back, I wanna see what kind of joint you got going on back there.

    Really man. I love it. It reminds me of ernie ball in a way. A very traditional and inovative style.

    Is that pickguard glo-in-the-dark?

    Another thing...how's the neck dive on the one on the right? It seems like it would be a bit harsh.

    I like that one on the right. Looks like it's got some FUNK!! :D
     
  13. It actually balances really well. I used Hipshot UL tuners so the headstock is pretty light. The body is a bit on the heavy side so it all works out well. Here are some pictures with decent lighting.
     
  14. And the back.

    Wow! I really like the singlecut, and I never thought I would ever say that ;)

    I'm about as conservative as they come (I play natural Ps with black pickgaurds) but that shape is classic.

    Well done!
