it is real and no the tone is not affected by the carving. a solid body electric isnt like an accoustic where the tone is only generated by the body. a solid body colors the tone. thanks for the kind words
dude This is BADD ARSE!!!! I do a little carving ,but this is over the top! Iv.e also built a few guitars but nothing like this.Did you build the whole thing or just the carving,if ya don't mind me asking?Smokin work and gallery!
this piece actually has monstrous tone it's not like a hollow body accoustic, where the body is the tone.the bodies tone wood only colors the tone on a solid body electric. and the wood used in this particular piece is one of the densest pieces of mahogony i've ever worked with. that combined w/ good passive pickups makes for huge tone. thanks for the kind words
alien style like would be perfect, head, tail, you already did something similar i got ibanez, but, buying new one soon! anyway, your work SHOULD be pretty famous! ( if it isnt already ) you could teach carving without any problem lol!
