Artype Custom electric Guitar by back2root Artype Custom electric Guitar by back2root
I just thought I'd post a quick picture of my first guitar... It's very nearly finished, it just need's all the textures and final details applying.

I've made the guitar from scratch out of hard Lime, with a Maple & Rosewood neck. So far its taken between 150 & 200 hours. I think there is probably about 30+ hours left. I just hope its all worth it!

Let me know what you think...

Hahaha at first I thought you made it out of limestone or limes, I had never heard of limewood. What kind of finish are you planning to use? Did you make the neck too?

I think it is totally worth it! There are a lot of interesting guitar designs, however as I noticed a lot of them copy each other. But your idea is completely fresh, I have never seen anything like this, I love it!
