Seven That is nothing short of Kick Ass!! I'd buy the white right now
The only thing I'd do different is move the 5 way up where a Les Paul"s 3 way is and I'd be sold.*ching*

Yeah, they had locking Sperzels with progressively longer spacers on their high-end AES model, but now they only have them on the Frank Gambale signature model.

Two hands31 Very cool Kinda makes me think of something between an Ernie Ball JP7, a PRS (a little bit, especially the fancy wood ones), and a little RG in there. I really really like 'em.

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!

Farbaute 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

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

darren wilson 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.

Jeff 2nd one, but probably without the binding.

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