As said, the neck is underway.....
That is cool. Could you render that again with lighting from above to get the shading even? I would like to try to pattern edit that if you don't mind.
Hey Magnus. Are you familiar with the Arvidson guitars? Back in the early nineties I saw Jonas Isaacsson play a really cool guitar when he was with Roxette. It was a single cut with an oversize body. One was a twelve string and another a six with a Floyd. I fell in love with these guitars and later found out they were made by Arvidson.
A build or two down the road I'd like to do something similar. I've been trying to find info on these guitars for years but haven't been able to dig up anything.
That is amazing
As Napolean Dynamite said "You have Skills"
Here's some more work in progress images of Scott's neck. All I've done is to adapt it to the neck angle of my top model and some tweaking with the headstock-neck transistion. The headstock isn't tapered in this model, we'll take a decision about that after a first evaluation.
what do you use for rendering again?
those look stunning
For the rendering I use Cinema 4d. I got my hands on a trial version around '94 and been working professional with it since '97. I'm to old to change software but I'm playing around with Bunkspeed's Hypershot, a pretty amazing real time rendering application.
I always forget I'm not looking at the real thing when I see those pictures. Looks great! What about holes for tuners?
I've actually owned a 59' burst replica made by Arne Arvidson. The guitar is now owned by my old friends the Åhden twins, you in Sweden knows who they are, and for the rest of you, well let's say that they own a couple of guitars.
Magnus--do a sirloin beef steak, rare- I am hungry.mike
Better yet...make me the perfect woman, will ya?
Oops...I forgot...I'm already married to her!
Jeez was she standing next to you when you typed that?
My first wife told me I need to get a life, My third wife told me get another wife
Magnus, what HDRI did you use for that render? I looked in my HDR file and see I am low... Can you send me some?
Glad I read this thread, I'm doing my first build (well builds, I'm doing an ash/sycamore practice body and mahogany/maple proper one) and am about to start carving the top. My plans make no mention of pickup angle/plane whatsoever and I'd been working on having a flat mid section. Will have to revise my plans now and also work out how I'm going to do it.
Though... if my top is currently completely flat, can I just rout in the neck angle for the fingerboard area and then rout the pickup angle up the tailpiece. My only concern would be that I've already routed out the pickup holes and I don't want any breakout on the edges.
Leave it- the angles are more of an artifact than a significant contributor to tone..mt
As long as you keep the pup plane/neck plane ratio it shouldn't be a problem. If you mess with that you might have problem with the ABR.
My comment was based on him being well into his positioning.mt
Hmmm, might leave it then, 2 degrees is not huge
A post on this topic -Oh, how far we have come. Yesterday I picked up my Corian Master Pattern. It is a fine piece of tooling. Thanks to all who contributed to a very special project. Ole'Lefty
