well see theres nothing wrong with that! i was expecting some real nastiness! hehe

i wanted them to be a range if you like - the desiree/sakura guitars and basses, then the deco versions of those ones. obviously the archtop is an upsized deco, and the imp was a kind of crazy version of the desiree. and everyones got to have a strat type thing hehe.

so rather than having lots and lots of different things running around, i thought a nice little group who stay together would be more manageable. as it is i've only made those two, and no one wants one so the others arent getting made anyway. which is a bugger. but ah well.

maybe if i start being in a position to be able to do more and more i would, but maybe not. i seem to go through spurts of being creative, and then outside of that, i cant do anything. which is rather annoying

I love the orange, semi-acoustic one. It's actually amazing!

I'm going to PM you about some things

Those all look really nice. That last one (the blue one) looks a lot like the shape I came up with for a custom guitar for myself (that won't happen for quite a while). The orange one has an amazing finish too.

Edit: That AYA one looks even more like the shape I came up with

i think if you were going for a range, i wouldnt. I'd go for a range of each style. Like take the Impressionist one, for example (i took that one cos i really like the cut into the body. looks nice) You should make an Impressionist Standard, Impressionist SH (Semi Hollow) etc. By doing this, you've a whole new freedom to do slight changes, and really perfect the designs. I think they're all too different to have them all as one range. Each design is definitely good enough to merit its own range.

oh, i probably should have said - the desiree and sakura models have standard, svelte (semi-hollow), jnr. and custom options.

the deco ones are semi-hollow anyway, but i guess there could be jnr. versions with no carving on the top.

the impressionist is designed to have a mirror top on the body, with a step down to the treble horn, which is painted or coloured like the rest of the body and neck. so this could also easily have a jnr version with just a standard finish and flat as opposed to the slightly curved top i have in mind for it.

lol no. not at all. i guess people are reluctant to spend money on someone they've never heard of or seen anyone famous playing. or they seem to think that i should just be charging them for parts and do the rest for free - which iv had once or twice.

fair enough in some respects, if you are going to charge like alexbarnett rates..

you probably be a bit reluctant, cause his work didnt start off very good, though his new guitar is pretty decent.

but still not a good control of quality and from a large manufacturer you can actually test the guitar before you buy it,

and also no resell value or very low,

though all in all your guitars seem really good quality and look absolutely stunning

Edit: hey sherpa_man sorry for having ago at your vids earlier on

no, its actually tradition around here that everyone tells tyechan to fuck off. He always posts random pointless shit, so in the spirit of the thread, you have 100% permission to tell tyechan to fuck off. Just ask anyone like Samcoma, JJ, or MuseMatt, who are always around. Observe:

Fuck off tyechan

Agreed, except for when it is actually necessary.
