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...

Really nice craftmanship and well executed! I especially like the texture of the "tendons" or whatnot. It gives you feel of elasticity. But I don't understand the theme as a whole.

Dude this is a beast. What did you use to do this? Did you start with a certain body style, and are you going to paint it? Honestly, i think it's beautiful the way it is.

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?
