    I made this a while ago and it was supposed to be maori/tatau themed, hence all the tatau designs and the abalone. The pickup covers are definitely too much, but this was just for fun and to see how it'd look with something like that. I remember trying to use ebony for the fretboard and it just made the whole thing feel squashed, though maple did look good.

    The mig-sporer. I am a massive cold war military hardware enthusiast and as such i would love to have a cold war soviet take on a warbird type finish. This mockup is fairly old and rough. if i were to re-do it id fix the controls as they are obviously way too close together and the headstock looks a bit off.

    The top end of the guitar is based on the black stripe on the vertical stabilizer of a mig 25 and 31

    and the camo patern is based off of something a bit more modern, mig 29SMT splinter style camo

    And change the angle of the headstock tip so it looks like the MIG tailfin.

    @KnightBrolaire here's a matching headstock in a joyful gradient made in 5 min...:D

    You can't just use the "magic wand" and be done, you've got to work the mask and its limits. Go full pixel editing if you must.

    Oh, and a Wacom also helps...

    yup guilty, I just used the magic wand. Didn't feel like breaking out the wacom or really making em look clean :p

    did you made these?? ^^

    oi! stop messing with my mockups :fawk: hehehe :p



    also the one you did in red is the newer/improved one. The others are from an earlier version were I just blacked out the hardware instead of replacing it with a black hardware sample. And a small fix on the headstock to be black, instead of ebony if you look up close. and a fix on the neck pickup position that made more sense. Basically to match the 71' using the same layers

    saw around instagram a guitar company build a superstrat in that kind of "shapes" and to top it off they added chamelon paint. It looked pretty awesome. Cant remember the name tho
