Hey Man, Nice going

To me the pots looks little off, the center of them seems a little wide, also the pickups seem a little too thin and the neck and fingerboard appear to be one piece of wood (which I've never seen on a guitar, correct me if i'm wrong)

The above are comparing it to my Fender Strat.

Great work on the materials (i'm thinking of giving Maxwell a go for my guitar LOL)

Thanks for the comments,

but what are the "pots"? Do you mean the three thingies under the strings? When I measured those with my a ruler now I actually see they are too thin...have to scale those. I've measured most parts but forgot a some.

You're right about fingerboard, it should be a separate piece. But since that's only visible by the texturing (you can't even feel it) I will fix that in texturing when I create the textures for real. I've just applied a random wood texture for now.

The "Pots" are the dials (Volume Treble and Bass on a guitar like that) the three things under the strings are the pickups.

Oh and looking back on your pic's you need to model the nut as its just a poly cube at the moment, sure its just an oversight though

nice soing, looking forward to updates, as its a Fender Strat copy you could add fender decals to it???

Just a thought.

Ok, the "pots" are the dials...hehe... I actually thought they look to fat at the top aswell, but I measured them several times and they match perfectly. So it's either a camera angle thing or something else is out of proportion compared to them...

Ok, so what's the "nut"? If you mean the white "box" where the strings go though I wasn't going to model those narrow passages since they won't show unless it's a really close up. But as it's pretty easy I might as well do it.

No Fender stickers, since I want to model it as it is in reality since I'm gonna put it in my living room scene. However there will be a Behringer logo on it :p

Smile absolutely beautiful

just the smallest of crits and ( i have not seen your guitar but) i thought that the grain on the neck should run along the neck to give it strength , wouldnt it just crack if the grain ran across? like i said I havent seen your guitar But, It just looks odd to me

bruce: As I said before the texturing is just a temporary quickie.

younglion: hehe.... I'll throw in some wires later today.

Here's a wire. Some objects are NURBS and some others are smoothed polys since they don't have the input graph because of duplication (without the input graph).

The Kobs on a strat, do taper from the bottom of the center part to the top, this might be why they look a bot too fat in the center..

Cheers

thanks for the kinds words, marlonjohn.

gster123, Yeah I know they are tapered. And I tapered them as well.

Since last pic I took a photo of my guitar from far away to minimize the perspective distortion. I then put it in Maya and rescaled and moved things. So now according to the pic everything is in the right place with the right scale. I also modeled the last pieces, so now it's on to the texturing and fine tuning of materials.

Here's a pic. Some close-up's coming next time.
