    well assuming that you have a normal digital camera with various settings try taking pictures or stuff not directly in the sun so that your camera sensor is not overpowered by the sunlight and can not focus on the object

    try with that, it usually works, and experiment with various objects.

    Well I dont believe in studio pictures anymore and I'm a real distressed picture style lover...

    I'm about to edit a bunch I just took, if you like distressed environements you will love it :agreed:

    For all my pictures and the ones on my website I'm using my mobile phone which is a samsung SGH - G800, it can go up to 5 million pixels, I know there are new models which go higher but this one works perfect for me + its got great ISO so it can be darker outside, the pictures will still be of high quality...

    The MACRO option rules big time....

    :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown: those tuners are sex on a guitar!!!

    great instrument Patrick, i love it and i think from all your pictures / guitars this one goes the nicest with your rusty atmosphere..maybe a wood combination to re-use for future model (7 - 8)?

    do you think you can use the same head shape for a 8? or will it be too long and slightly out of shape with the rest of the guitar?

    yep probably. i think the curve on the upper part of your headstock is really cool, really aggressive yet well defined, really bad ass!!!

    maybe there could be a way to use that on a 8 string headstock...where's my pencil?
