I want to give a bit back to Pinside folks by offering a mod to a handful of people for free, or just enough to cover some costs. I haven't worked out how many I can do, nor how much (if anything) it'll cost to get these out to people. I don't have all the details worked out in my head yet, so I'm not taking names and have nothing definitive planned. All I know is I am trying to figure out the best way to get this to the most people for the lowest amount. (This is not a big production thing, let's set expectations... I'm not a business, I'm just trying to get a handful or two out to people). But the ease at which I can put all this together, the more I can do. If there is enough interest, I'll try to work out how to meet that interest. Here's the back story:
I've really disliked the metal bracket just above the shooter lane, and wanted to cover it up. I thought a nice 3d model of a miniature guitar would look great. (It's GNR after-all, and who doesn't want more guitar?) I've made a few brackets, and painted up and tweaked a model guitar to match Slash's most iconic Gibsons. It is coming along well, and I continue to tweak things as I get more input from pinsiders. I have a highly detailed 3D wooden model of a Gibson-style hollow-body guitar, strings, frets, tuners, multi-coat gloss instrument-grade lacquer et. al. -- in 2 out of 3 of Slash's iconic paint schemes. (I'm working on the third now). To date, here's what I have mocked up so far.
(I created this thread to avoid clogging up the main GNR thread. It also helps me keep everyone's input tidy. Thanks again for all of your help.3558aa6fc3f5560f0e00973e70ab2d1b405a4a93 (resized).jpg
