Re: JEM Design Contest - WINNER ANNOUNCED

Like I said before, that is a truly amazing guitar. To professionally critique it, it looks almost like a swirl, but with an actual pattern. Beautiful :'D

But I'm not a fan of a good chunk of the some of the finalists' work. Macka, 6Fingers, and many others had designs far more befitting of some of those spots, imo.

But maybe I'm just butt-hurt that people I know here didn't get up there :/ All in all, fantastic, I wanna see it when it's really made, and I wanna know the specs lol

I believe that (second row, far right) Waverider's OLED managed to find its way to the finalists.

Looks as if the designer just used a fractal image generator and just plonked it on the body in photoshop....

I have to agree Vai's tastes were not mine at all...

Hope we get to see good photos of the finished product..

Not a fan. But I do like that one on the far right of the second row. That's a nifty guitar!

Fractal image generator or just glued some google pics.
But well it's Vai's guitar.

Re: JEM Design Contest - WINNER ANNOUNCED

I like the 4th one from the left in the 2nd row, but there are a lot of cool guitars there. I actually thought Darren's looked outstanding and had a decent shot of winning.

I told you it's about Vai tastes and not about whatever you all thought it was.
