Tena Koe Ataahua Mahi Bro How much to get my guitar done like that ?? mean maori mean
hey bro,cheers,this one was sort of started as a once off for myself,flat out at the moment with work and renos on our new joint,and a couple of other side projects on the go too,still havnt finished this one yet (only really needs a finish put on it and assembly)hopefully when i get on top of things over the next year or so i will start doin commision work again and hopefully will build a few more of these
This is so impressive and beautiul. I would love to see the finished product. Cheers fellow luthier!
I've NEVER seen anything like this! This is stunningly beautiful!
thanks,pulled it out the other day and carved all the inlays for it,so hopefully get a little spare time to finish it soon
Beautiful work and very clean lines!
is is is... amazing!!!
Omygod... I want to see the complete guitar. OwO
thanx,nearly there,got a few other projects to finish then il be back on it,got about a weeks worth of work left on it
Have I seen your work on another website? It looks familiar to some work by another guitar artist whose website I ran across on the web. I can't remember their name though, and I lost the link
no,dont have any other websites,there might be the odd photo floating around on f/b,theres a few guitar carvers around that produce some amazing work,this is my first attempt at it,have been meaning to do one for 15yrs after seeing a fender that had a small carving done around the top,i thought it looked pretty awesome and that i would go a step further and make and carve one from end to end in maori design ,finally got around to it
This is absolutely beautiful, can't wait to see it when it's finished.
This is the most wonderful guitar I've ever seen, even it's not finished. Brillant craftsmanship!
Wow, this is amazing. O_O
How long does something like this take? It's really really really really good
thanx,takes longer to design it so it fits and flows with the piece more than anything,couldnt really give u accurate hrs ,but i started july 2010 and have been off and on since,has about a weeks worth of work left
wow. absolutely stunning. how will you finish it? i would love to play this axe once in my life.
thanks,looking at a light tint laquer at the moment,still have abalone shell and jade inlays to go on the body and neck though
But how does it sound?
very quite at the moment,but once the strings,knobs,twin humbuckers&single coil are in place and plugged in,im hoping it sounds good
wow.. you're kidding, right? it's amazing, man!
Beautiful piece. Wish I could do art like that
I think this is going to turn out to be the most beautiful guitar I've ever seen. What kind of wood did you carve it from?
omg ! >< i want one like this ! so beautiful
WOW! I'm speechless...
that is amazing man, would've taken ages
awesome work. It reminds me of the Ibanez Dragon.
Man, you have real talent - it looks amazing now, it'll be mind-blowing when it's finished!
