AF Guitars

Hellooo!

iv been on the muse live forums for quite a while and someone said i should post this on here too. so i am.

This thread is basically just showing the guitars i make as/when i make them. some people seem to be interested so i thought i would show, and i always like seeing other peoples builds, so i cant be alone.

anyway, to get them out of the way as im sure everyones rather sick of them by now - i made this one for myself a few years ago. it was the third guitar id ever made, after a gap of 5 years since the one before it

its currently getting a makeover - new neck as the original was huge, and remirrored with normal mirror as its cheaper than coloured.

then i made this one for someone - the change in shape was down to him as he didnt just want a straight copy. he never got it in the end as circumstances meant he couldnt pay for it, but someone else bought it and loves it. which is nice.



now onto my own designs. so far iv only made two of my designs. this first one was made for my friend. its a SAKURA model - this one is a Sakura Svelte (semi-hollow) Custom (maple front and back, bolt on neck). it has Bare Knuckle P92's with a tuned filter that filters out the mids and gives an acoustic type sound at the turn of a knob.



this is the latest one iv done, and the best so far. its a DESIREE. it has a South American Mahogany body with flame maple top (tropical lagoon stain - looks more blue in some of the pics than it is), a one piece Wenge neck with Wenge fretboard and Rosewood binding. Bare Knuckle Mississippi Queen and Nailbomb (with custom etched cover) and Gotoh hardware



these are my other designs. IMPRESSIONIST, DECO D, DECO S, AYA, ARCHTOP, SAKURA BASS, DESIREE BASS, DECO S BASS, DECO D BASS

i feel i shouldnt voice my opinions on this one. Even if i am only looking at it from a design point of view. Other than that, they're nice......

ok. But before i do, i dont mean any offence, cos i do like a lot of them.

However, I notice there's almost a sense of repetitiveness about them. Now, being a designer myself, i know that a lot of designers will try to create a sort of style or method that will almost be like a signature for them. And if thats what you're going for, then i think you've already done it, but you're also bringing in a bit of rerpetitiveness.

Personally, i do like the sort of signature-like-style you're going for, i think its quite elegant, but not in a boring way. However, i think that you have the potential to create some really original designs.

Im not at all trying to be negative, and sorry if it comes across like that, but do you see my point or will i be more specific??

PS. I do actually like your designs, and your finished guitars are excellent.
