    Great job, Ron!! It's amazing how close the conceptual rendering is to the actual guitar...that's a great program you use!!

    Thanks guys. But I really didn't start the thread for guitar kudos.
    (but the kudos are cool though)
    Just wanted to share a technique that has done wonders for my buisness.
    The one thing that I try to exspress to my clients is a custom guitar is an investment that you should feel good about. Better to see what your axe is gonna look like before the work begins.
    Cant tell you how many changes take place when the guitar the think up just doesn't make em happy, looks wise.
    Even the color of a pickguard can make the world of difference.

    That's always a great idea Ron. I actually use that kind of thing as much for myself when designing guitars as I use it to show customers what their stuff will look like.

    Here's one I always wanted to do, so I put together a digital picture using Paint.net.


    Since I could see it, and do scale measurements off of the drawing, I decided to go ahead with the project... I'll post some pics when it's done.

    Good stuff. I agree that it helps alot when you're trying to figure out a design with someone to be able to see it.

    I design my builds using 3D modeling software, the first time through it was a lot of work, but now with a few tweaks I can do some pretty useful renderings. Here's an example:
