I'm very proud of it..be nice please

Hi, this is my first post here...i'd been watching for about 5 month.. From the day i bought my BSB..well more than a sweet traded actually.. i gave him a Epiphone Les Paul Standar with Dimarzio superdistortion and $500 a he gave me a beatiful Jem..i love that guitar...

But that´s no the topic of this.. A friend of mine Got impressed with the Yngwie Video in wich he shows a Nylon String Stratocaster.. made By Fender..so he decided (my friend) that he will build one too..so a month ago he finally get the Piezo that he need to build so he did.. and the result was espectacular..When i saw the guitar and played it i decided that i should have one too.. so the Short story, here is it:



It was a Washburn Lyon Neck in a noname Body, i made a several modificacións to that guitar..

you can see it here..


So i have to remove the Floyd Rose and put a Wood Bridge..and ´cause a like it so much the finish of the BSB i went for something like that..


It sound Great...at least too me..

What do you guys think?

Thanks..

The monkey grip i did it myself following the Brian´s Direcctions from www.projectguitar.com. ..with a little variations ´cause when i tested it first in piece a Wood it did not came out like the one on my BSB ..maybe a mesured wrong...so i took a template from my guitar a did the work..Following the instructions and using a Flat bladed drill bits,.. I think it looks pretty well and acurate.


For the sound Clip..here is
http://mipagina.cantv.net/jimenezr/sample1.mp3

Something, i think, it should sound familiar to you

Please judge the sound, not the guitar player

cheers

thanks..I´m glad you like it..

The idea is to have a guitar that have the classical sound in a "Confortable" way...i don´t know is that is a real word.. but for me the Clasical guitar is too Big!!..my hands are small so i´ve always had trouble playing them.. Now i can practice and learn Classical songs..

The record was with an old Yamaha G100-212 and a very cheap mike..
into my SB live card..

with no efects at all.

Yes.. The pickup is a Piezo from Belcat with a 5 Band E.Q.

I believe is the model Belcat 9050..here it cost around $100..i guess is cheaper in everywhere else.. Here everything is soooooooo Expensive

i think a nice red vine down that fretboard would really look killer.

or, maybe a brown vine with red leaves?

the sound though, fantastic already!
