    Default Body design ideas

    How many of you have ever thought to make a guitar body but just didnt know what kind of body shape you wanted or how many pickups, trem etc... Well, I'm kinda in that problem cuz this guy (http://www.downinfrontht.com) has inspired the hell outta me to make my own guitar from pure scratch.

    I was playin around with some body designs and some neck designs and I cant think of one dam thing! Mostly because all of the best designs have already been made, including the soloist, Ibanez RG, strat and my favorite, the wolfgang. I just dont understand how to come up with body designs.

    I guess what I'm lookin for is a strat-based guitar, 2 hums, original non-recessed floyd, maple neck with maple or birdseye fretboard, 1 volume and maybe 1 tone, either a 6 straight (strat) or 3+3 angled (wolf, lp) head.

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey Thai,
    I guess we all kind of want to do the same thing. My suggestion would be to make a sheet of possible diagrams and carry it with you. In time you should narrow down a body style, p/u configuration etc. It might be hard for us Halenites to give our own ideas of body style, but I'm sure you could get help with neck, pickups and other hardware. Keep us updated....

    I have always wanted a neck thats like a strat up top, but has the configuration of the Wolfgang/ebmm tuners...lately, I've been eying flame maple necks as well. Wouldn't mind it (the body) looking like the bottom of the EBMM and the top horn looking like the Wolfie. Wouldn't mind trying Alder out, either...Red43j
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!
