So, at this time, I'm not saying that I WILL do it. I'm only saying that I want to do it.
I want to build a fake Chibson.
For it to qualify as a fake I guess it would have to be built anywhere else, other than in China. In my case it would have to be made in the USA, which is kind of ironic that making a fake of a Chinese fake of an American product would end up being made in the US.
I also want this build to be a challenge. I would like it to end up being better than an actual off the shelf Gibson. So, a fake Chibson, made in USA, better quality than a Gibson. Hm... My mind is spinning. The past that says MADE IN USA on the back of an authentic Chibson is faked by it actually having been made in the USA. Wow, this is hard to put into words.
Since I haven't finished my current build (although it's approaching completion) I don't want to cut a single board, yet. But any good project starts with the planning, anyway.
So, I'm starting with the headstock logo design.
It can't say Gibson on the headstock, because that would make it a fake Gibson. So, it actually has to say Chibson.
I have two proposals. I'd like to hear which one you guys thing is better.
Chibson logo proposal #1:
And Chibson logo proposal #1:
So, which is better?
And, by all means, tell me what you think of the project.
