It's possible there will be a bottle opener headstock accessory one day, but these will have to do for now.

Stickers are a cool idea as well!

So, here's a progress shot of the models that will be on dispaly at Summer NAMM, 18 instruments in total:

the guitars look great! I suggest you re-evaluate the logo location and size so that it is more visible when the guitars are mounted -- like maybe raise ir up on the wall... Good luck at the show!

Matt,

Yes, the logo placement was definitely a miscalculation on my part.

That said, I think I'm going to reconfigure the arrangement to work around that, using two horizontal hangers above the logo in the top right.

That way, the logo is more visible and I only lose one space on the wall.

I agree. Right behind the upper row of necks would go good. Those are some great guitars and your name really needs to be out there for all to see easily.

I've come up with a way to rearrange the guitars to allow the logo to be a more prominent part of the display.

I will have two of the horizontal hangers above the logo with the guitars sloping up and to the right parallel to the angled bottom of the "L" in the logo.

The guitars below and to the sides of the logo will mirror each other from the right side to the left.

The great news here is that I will still have as many guitars displayed in the same space.

:w00t:

Cool. I hope it's wildly popular for you.

That's awesome. You'll have to get some pictures of the final display orientation at NAMM. I bet it'll look epic, framing in your logo like that.

I have already moved the guitars around with the existing hangers and I think it will look stunning once the two new ones arrive.

I'm going to tell eveybody at NAMM that I had it all planned out this way.

:D

Me, too!

Here's a quick update on the layout of the booth, with a plastic bin as a place keeper for a bass rig.

I've been very busy with wiring harnesses and pickups.

That's much nicer. For two reasons: it shows your logo better and the two guitars angled at the top break up the all straight vertical thing that was going on before. I hope it's a total success for you.

Thanks!

With harnesses complete and connectors installed, it's time for final assembly.
