Some words about me and my drawings. As a hobbist I have built CBGs, electric basses and guitars for the last six years. Unfortunately it's difficult for me to do it now, because I'm working for the next years in foreign countries, far from my tools.
I started to search the net for shapes beside the mainstream, looking for forgotten designs but strange and worth enough to remember. Or very simple shapes like the "Thin Twin" or the "Stratotone". Mostly designs from no longer existing companies, or model series run out a long time ago. I use pictures I find in the net and I use Inkscape to reduce the pictures to drawings, that I may use in the future to copy the Instruments. But I allways do changes to the original designs. Not the shapes of the bodies, but electronics, Hardware, size, accessories, shape of the headstock and finishes. I like semi hollow intruments and f-holes. I don't like pickguards as a must, they should have a sense as a design element or they should have a function to cover crazy electronics.They should never cover beautiful wood.
So, all of my drawing are reduced to my personal preferrations. (Sorry for my English)
