Man is this classy or not?
What's that expression again...? Gilding the lily...?
that mini-bucker looks great... it's the little things huh?!
Are the knobs for people with limited mobility?
Headstock decal is too complicated. The pickguard design tailpiece and bridge are pretty cool.
Its so complicated you dont know where to focus but it is different and thats good.
I read the write-up about this guitar in this month's Guitar Buyer magazine a few days ago.
I love Trev's work, but I'm sorry - this just doesn't do it for me....
I love it.
might look better with fewer screws involved?
I'd say that being different CAN be good but just being different doesn't mean that it IS good.
Is this an ink pattern test ?
silly ,in a bad way.
if all that plastic was dark ebony...
and the brown wood was dark ebony...
it would bump it up several notches...
good design...too frugal on the material..
i like the design just not that color combination. i would brake that violin looking tail peice quicker than....qwik. makes me want to build another one though.
This however, I do like the look of:
I'm all for different, and everyone's taste is different for sure. But to my eye that is just over the top with all the scroll work. The tailpiece is cool but somehow out of place here. I do like the mini humbucker , I have used the same ones with very pleasing results. Just my $0.02.
Thats what it reminded me of.
like the travis one the best.
Nah, not for me. Call me a traditionalist but that's just too "busy" for me. Couldn't live with the headstock either.
Reading all the replies showed me who clicked the link and who did NOT click the link.
Because if you clicked the link:
- You'd know that the "decal"on the headstock is not a decal, it's pickguard material.
- The Pickguard is made from genuine bakelite
- The guitar is meant as a direct tribute to Bigsby's Merle Travis guitar. (And I figured we all could make the link by just looking at it but apparently not everybody is familiar with that iconic Bigsby instrument)
Decal? Nope, your genuine bakelite mate and that also includes the knobs.
