Eric Clapton's "Blackie" Fender Stratocaster

A labour of love. Every texture was hand made, no photographs. Even the Spring cavity on the back is taken from a specially made Maya 3D model, constructed just for this project. I replicated all the scratches and chips and even the worn finger marks on the neck and the faded decals on the headstock, along with realistic cigarette burns and a smoking cigarette burning between the strings (with amazingly realistic particle smoke). This took so long, so very, very long..

Gretsch - Chet Atkin's Country Gentleman

The 6122, 1962 Country Gentleman is considered by many to be one of the holy trinity of Gretsch guitars, along with the 6120 and White Falcon. George Harrison famously owned a Gretsch, as did Elvis, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty and many more. This is another labour of love. The main body, front and back, is a sculptie, incredibly difficult to make and bring successfully into SL. In fact, over 70% of the guitar parts are sculpties, enabling a high level of detailed accuracy. This and 'Blackie' are my two best gutiar builds.
