Hey everyone. I know i never finish projects and the like, but I've recently heard of this one from a friend (joopson ). So I'd like to enter.

I'm thinking about an electric guitar that's been left in the garage for a while... broken strings, rusty pickups, tarnished mud-covered body, scratched neck, and the likes. Probably a fender stratocaster.

I'll probably be modeling in Maya/Modo and rendering in Maxwell.

Thing is Matt, you need to model a guitar that some one would leave to rot in a garage, say an Ibanez, no one would leave a strat!

Joking!

Looking forward to what you come up with!

Hmmm... that sounds fair enough. I thought strat because I have one. How about an old, classic guitar. What about a telecaster? Those are fairly ancient. I really want to stray away from an acoustic. I think that wouldn't serve my purpose.

I would say Les Paul... but I sure as hell wouldn't let one of those sit in my garage. That's glass case material. Then again, so are telecasters.

Even better idea! How about my first guitar, a First Act strat-imitation $120 piece of shit?
