Re: My Latest Creation
I've said this before, there's nothing wrong with guitars made in China as long as the put their own branding on it. Quality won't be as nice as a custom Ibby or gibson but still isn't that bad and hey, you have to start somewhere. The big problem is when companies try to pass off their stuff as true originals and that holds true no matter where it's produced. Right now china is the main ones doing it and unfortunately any company there trying to market their stuff as actually their own get lumped in with all the fakes. So yeah, fakes = bad, origianls (even copies) = good (as long as they put their own branding on it.
In your case byuing a chinese made body & neck, that's all perfectly legit & don't let anyone give you crud about it. It looks good, sounds like it plays well, and most importantly you did a decent chunk of the work yourself.
For the guitar itself, I really love that green color and I think the pure white binding really makes the color pop. The grain on the spalted maple looks really cool too. I think the reverse head looks kinda cool, for sure it will make it stand out. What did you use for the color & top coat?
