Butterfly-Girl Concept guitar

Postby jonquilmusic » Thu Dec 01, 2011 2:56 am

Haven't been here in a while! Here's a concept guitar I just got done cutting tonight. The neck is a factory job this time, I hate dressing frets!!! It's made from 0.71" MDF leftovers from a cabinet manufacturer. All my sizes check out. Time to "Glue 'er & Screw 'er!"

Love the slicing feature of Cut 3D.

Here it is from the guitar players perspective looking down... sort of.

Well... it is certainly unique! I certainly have not seen one like it.

Some places you play it might consider it a little too cheeky for the audience.

Hmmm...I am a little worried about where you will attach the strap... :)

Crap... I didn't even think about the strap! I'm still trying to figure out where to put the input-jack that adds to the overall aesthetics of the piece without crossing the fine line into the obscene!

Back to the 3-D drawing board!

Here's a 5 string bass body that I cut using Cut 3-D. It's from an orginal solid piece of butcher block island top I re-purposed. It's all together now, and quite stage-worthy, too. Fun to play.

Have you checked out this post:

viewtopic.php?f=13&t=12923.

Looks like that would make a very interesting guitar body as well. :)
