16-tone mockingstealthwarignitor 3 day hackjob
« on: February 08, 2012, 10:17:16 AM »

hacked out this nasty guitar in 3 days. It was a 25.5 inch scale , now 24" - has overhang past the 2nd octave.... was a crappy 7 string ibanez GIO. now THIS is a cheap guitar. Once it's done i'll post some more pics....  still need to do more shaping and sanding, then bevel the edges of the body and paint it im gonna try to finish it today.

pre-strings pic...

I strung it up and it actually plays and sounds really sick. eventually Im gonna put a floyd on it and a top or back i think, bevel the edges bigtime, and call it a day...

I have always loved spiky, sinister guitars but only more recently i realised how good they are ergonomically for classical style playing while sitting and a choice of which leg to sit it on. Seems to me the perfect guitar shape is an X-shape a little like the new Ibanez Falchion ... but with a longer top horn to make it a real X, and for better balance when strapped on.

Falchion ... and the beautiful Norwegian 'Commander in Chief'.
