[quote="guitarded":33o73b4u][quote="Jjango":33o73b4u][quote="Funkshwey":33o73b4u][quote="Joe Smithebrger":33o73b4u]What would it look like offfset a bit the other way so the body fanned with the bridge? It would be lighter although maybe a little Fenderbirdish. Truthfully, the Pbass shape fits the Dingwall concept better than the J. I really dig the maple neck 5 strings.[/quote:33o73b4u] +1 and the overall length from body to headstock tip would be more compact by a few inches with a traditional P Bass body too. :wink:[/quote:33o73b4u] Just a quick & dirty mockup: In my opinion, it looks like Salvador Dali was given access to the CNC machine. :lol: I don't really care for it.[/quote:33o73b4u] Ugggh, not pretty. Hey, Jj, since were in reverse mode, what would a D-Bird look like, you know, with the neck end of the body also done like a Tbird? Might be a cool model for young rock warriors. Mark[/quote:33o73b4u] TBird with fanned fret?? +1 for that

[quote="Jjango":1mbtecoy]Something along these lines, perhaps? [img:1mbtecoy]http://img366.imageshack.us/img366/3538/quiltburstmmxs6.jpg[/img:1mbtecoy][/quote:1mbtecoy] I don't think the ends of the humbucker should be parallel to the strings. Try it more like this?: [img:1mbtecoy]http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c277/Brim79/Dingwall/SP5%20Jjango%20Renderings/BRIM-EDIT-quiltburstmmxs6.jpg[/img:1mbtecoy] I think it's easier (cheapier) to produce a rectangular pickup shell rather than a parallelogram one. :) An exposed pole humbucker?? Man, Sheldon is gonna flip. (BTW, JJ - what software are you using for these renderings? illustrator?)

[quote="Jjango":3t4rdn3z]Sheldon's gonna kick my ass for making people GAS for non-existent products! :shock:[/quote:3t4rdn3z] Looking back over this thread, I think you nailed it on the first post - excellent work. My taste runs to a fretted version of the black and tort one in the first batch.

Thanks, Joe! Here's a fretted version: [url=http://img172.imageshack.us/my.php?image=fretteden3.jpg:2z2ogygm][img:2z2ogygm]http://img172.imageshack.us/img172/5962/fretteden3.th.jpg[/img:2z2ogygm][/url:2z2ogygm] Here ya go, Brim: [img:2z2ogygm]http://xs230.xs.to/xs230/08354/quilt_burst_mm2688.jpg[/img:2z2ogygm] At this point though, isn't it kinda just an FD3 with exposed pole pieces? [quote="Brim":2z2ogygm](BTW, JJ - what software are you using for these renderings? illustrator?)[/quote:2z2ogygm] I'm using Photoshop only, Brim. Basically, I create an outline with the pen tool, then paint everything in with the airbrush tool. Like this, basically: [img:2z2ogygm]http://img139.imageshack.us/img139/6799/azurebluevj8.gif[/img:2z2ogygm] Hey, John H.

Hi Jjango, congratulation for your great work, I used one of your pics to show my favourite, a very "hot" Super P. I would like to see this bass without the Pickguard, but I`m not an expert with Photoshop. Jjango, can you help me? Sheldon, if you can make it possible you will get my order for shure!

[quote="Brim":1d0ii0k5]Wow! Crazy skills man. Do you do this type of work for a living?[/quote:1d0ii0k5] Thanks, Brim! Yes, I'm a graphic designer. Like this, groovemachine? I changed the background color so the bass wouldn't blend into it. [img:1d0ii0k5]http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/6331/redquiltburstsi0.jpg[/img:1d0ii0k5]

My pleasure, groovemachine. Now, a look at a bass that Sheldon [i:20tyurx9]actually[/i:20tyurx9] offers for sale! :wink: :P Here's an SJ5 with a mockup of a... how do you say this?.. a 5-string P pickup with different sized halves. Is there a name for that? [img:20tyurx9]http://xs230.xs.to/xs230/08355/spj52812.jpg[/img:20tyurx9] I don't think it looks half bad. For some reason, I thought the two different sizes would look really ugly, but it's not so bad once you get used to it (IMO). I also went for a kind of chrome-ish finish, as seen on [url=http://xs.to/xs.php?h=xs230&d=08355&f=ritterf497.jpg:20tyurx9]this Ritter[/url:20tyurx9].

For me I would prefer the same size for both pickups. The red P looks better [u:3ikutusr]with[/u:3ikutusr] the pickguard, its very helpfull to compare here. Every new picture gives me new ideas, maybe a dark ebony fingerboard and a matching headstock....

You are right, a black or ebony headstock is much better. Thank you!

D'oh!
