Custom 7 mockups

I've been thinking alot about having a custom guitar made when I get a job.
When I saw all the beutiful mockups of the LEVIIATHAN I decided I just had to make a mockup of my own dream guitar. So here it is.

Some specs:
~~~~~~~~

* 25.5" scale
* 27 frets
* frets 20 - 27 are scalloped
* seven strings
* fixed bridge
* locking tuners
* two humbuckers
* 4 + 3 tuner configuration
* maple or ebony fretboard
* XII inlay on the 12th fret
* RG-shaped body with a deeper cutaway for easy access. Also the edges are a little rounder the RGs square-ish edges.

etc.

Here are some previews of the mockups. Klick the link below to see the mockup in it's full glory

Do they make tuning machines with different stem lengths like that? Just wondering.

2nd one, but probably without the binding.

Do you guys freehand these in Illustrator? You're sick!!!

Well, i can't speak for Marcus, but i can tell you the Leviathan mockups are done in Illustrator.

I originally traced the body and neck outlines from photographs and made flat 2D schematics of them in Illustrator for the LGM site. Then i had some finish ideas, so i added some shading and dimension to various parts in Illustrator and then took them into Photoshop to apply various effects and images.

When my Photoshop file got to over 250MB with all the layers (i was working at 150ppi), it was getting really slow, so i decided to bail on that file and go back to a pure Illustrator approach. As a result, some of the newer mockups have a very slightly different 'look' to them... Illustrator's web export capability isn't quite as sharp as Photoshop's, so the newer images are a little 'softer' in parts. Some minor finesse is missing from the Illustrator versions as well (no slight bevels around the body or cavities, for example) but the file is way smaller and easier to work with, and if i want to, i can print them as large as the photographic textures will allow.

That XII inlay makes me want to have a VIII inlay for my LeVIIIathan.

I use photoshop for everything. I'm planning on doing future mockups in Illustrator, just to learn the program better

I'll put more into my future mockups giving them more details etc... this was just a speed-made to capture a dream

Once you get the templates set up, it's addictive, isn't it?

I really like the abalone purfling you've done around the body and headstock... nice touch!
