Black&white shading maybe? Or do you want to keep it line-art as it is?

They print up better in bold colours, the cotton doesn't take shading too well, if you think of the cotton weave as a very low pixel resolution you'll get my drift.

Ok. I'll just add the missing details (like the stairs) and make the lines thicker.

The lines could be different colours, but fairly saturated.

No pinks! Sorry Jim.

Of course, nothing's stopping anyone from printing it onto a pink T-shirt. :rolleyes:

Hello, Here is a picture of a little Framus guitar where I replaced the finger and sounding boards (old upright piano sounding boards), it doesn't have finish yet so it will probably sound louder when I have to remove all the dirt I get on it first. The bad shape of old old sounding board is from removing it with a router so the ribs would be parallel to the top. To the left is the start for a ten string electric guitar that will be fretted in 22 tone equal temperament.

Thanks! Here's the inside that shows sloppiness a little better.

Its a kind of overbuilt improvised Kasha after seeing pictures of work by Gila Eban that I described last week in the fretboard topic. I think it's fairly successful but I don't have much experience with good guitars to compare it with.

I have never had a crack at building an acoustic, must get round to it someday.
But it looks very cool, good work.

Thanks, I thought it was a Kasha setup.

EDIT
PS This morning I saw a performance video of a lute player and I thought hard about your electric ten string. Maybe it's a lute.

OK - not my axe, but Lubo Alexandrov's awesome doubleneck which I got to try today. Also tried a nice Bulgarian Spanish-style fretless I might buy from him next year once I have a clearer idea of my student-life budget.

Lubo & I (my hideous Harkonnen eyebrows featuring prominently, Ned Evett take note):

Looks good...and heavy :whistling:

How come does it have so many knobs while it only has one pickup per neck?

My guess is that it has RMC hex pickups as piezos fitted in the bridges. That would also account for the little switches that break off when you fly anywhere with your instrument.

Nice, but does look heavy. :whistling: Gunnar had a full harness for his, looked quite the business, like he should also have a parachute for getting off those tall stages. :w00t:
