So I'm planning to build my own guitar for the first time. Well, not actually build from scratch, but assemble from parts I buy(body, neck etc)...
It is clear that it will be a superstrat with H-S-S, 24.3/4 scale neck, and probably 24 frets. Neck will be all maple, body will be alder painted with a solid color. It will have a pickguard...
Did some alternatives in Kisekae, please choose which one looks the nicest for you, or choose the last option. biggrin.gif

I would normally always go for at least a 2-tone, but out of these I would then suggest no. 2 smile.gif

Yeah, the thing is, if I decide to paint myself, I wanna keep it simple since I have no experience painting guitars...

Yep, inspired from that, and also some superstrat Jake E Lee used to play back in the days... tongue.gif
#1 is on the top of my list at the moment, but it wouldn't be bad with some color either?

At the moment I am for #1, the board votes are for #1, Most of my friends like #1 or #2, my wife is for #7...
Considering all this:


I guess it'll be #7 then...? ohmy.gif

I voted #7 because i love the orange-black variation. biggrin.gif It looks damn cool. Imo no2 is too common and no1 too much resembles the Iron Maiden Jackson model.

Be sure to keep us updated with info smile.gif
