Very realistic guitar designer!

Hey all. I think this is the right place to post this...

I found a great virtual guitar designer, VERY realistic.

It's for the Les Paul style only, but you get over it when you see the realism of the results.


Apologies if this is already known...

That's pretty nice! But it did take a few seconds to load.

Re: Very realistic guitar designer!

People still use dial up in the States?

Still takes a little while on the broadband though.

Less than two years ago nearly no one I knew had broadband or a high def TV now it's the opposite. The government seems keen on pumping digital TV here.

Re: Very realistic guitar designer!

I have to say that is an amazing virtual guitar builder. If it's even remotely related to something people do to LPs in included and it looks great. I wish it had other guitars too.

Well, it is a bit boring I guess for someone in love with Ibanez style guitars, but here is my creation so far. My father has a Gibson ES-175 Custom in this scheme and I have always loved the looks of it but not it's holow body traits. I used to dream about getting an LP custom like that and rockout to a huge crowd. I can remember listening to Jimmy Page and thinking I would be the next, but with a guitar like this instead of the honey burst LP he had.

So I designed this LP like that except without the pickgaurd and with quilted maple instead of flamed (that was a tough desicision). Everything else, even down to the inlays, is just like my pop's ES (aside from the headstock shape, control lay out and branding which you can't change).







My tastes have changed quite a bit I'm not really inot LPs as far as playing them goes. They are nice to look at and sound great, just not comfortable to me. Now I prefer super strats and regular strats, but you can't deny that LPs can have an influence over you when you see a beautiful one.

Is there an ES-175 Custom? I never heard of that one...maybe he's got an L-4? Any pics of Dad's 175? (I'm a BIG fan of the 175, never without one (or the equivalent 70's Ibanez copy) in my arsenal)

Sorry should have been the ES-137 custom. And I don't have any picks on my computer. I think my dad might.

That's cool! I've played around with a few programs like this, but never a LP. Thanks for sharing!

Re: Very realistic guitar designer!

Thats cool, can someone please tell me if it would work on a cort z custom which looks quite similar to a LP.

Hmmm I guess it's close.

But this one works best for the Gibson Les Paul and Ibanez ART shapes.
