DC04: PGM project 'Vine'

Hello...

this project is a Ibanez PGM stile body with a vine inlay on neck. I will name DC04 PGM 'Vine':




specifications DC04:

- Body: alder.
- Neck: maple with vine inlays in color black and abalone on a maple quilted fingerboard.
- Bridge: Gotoh fixed.
- Tuners: Gotoh.
- Pickups: 2 Dimarzio Evolution Humbuckers color cream.
- hardware: Gold.
- Finished: Black with white pearloid binding on body.



I bought all parts, woods, tools, and i began to build the body.

may be that i will do some little mistakes, but I hope they can be fixed.



edit:

the neck was a big problem: is a garbage!,, put on the fire. . so I orderd one from ET Guitars.

edit2:

Well... I have got the new neck from ET Guitars and it sucks ... some issues too.
So now I will try fix it by myself.

best regards,
Dani.

Re: DC04 building 'PGM Black'

What do you use to make those mock ups?
I am about to start a project and I would like to do that.
I tried Kisaeke but I cant save the pics.

Re: DC04 building 'PGM Black'

drawing profile and routing pickups cavities:
(i drew the monkey grip becouse i wasn't sure about it, but i will not make it. then the guitar will be a Jem and no a PGM )

Yeah, you have to do the whole print screen an then paste in to paint or w/e an cut it out of that etc etc, gets quite annoying if you do loads.

when you finish your kisekae project, you push 'Impr Pant' key on computer.
then you open your photoshop, paintshop or other graphic program and you 'paste as new image'... and you get it!

Looks like it will be pretty sweet, but you are not going with the F-holes, why's that?

we will not paint the 'PGM f-holes'. i don't like them.
then, the guitar will be a 'RG Black'

regards.

Re: DC04 building 'PGM Black'

the idea of this project comes from the orange Paul Gilbert guitar:






this is the reason that i name this project PGM.

(and yes, my english is bad. sorry)
