Hello everyone, just joined the site (it's great)

I wanted to post here and ask if there was any possibility of adding a Mosrite body shape to the dressing room?

they're not offset and not fender. as much as I'd love to see it (former mosrite owner) I'd like the laundry list of update requests like electric xii, colors, and other finish stuff to propagate into the dressing room.

i'm surprised no one has created a similar function for other types of guitars. kisekae back in the day was neat, but the osg dressing room was always the best.

I was a big fan of Kisekae back in the day, now I work in graphic design so I do my mockups myself if I have some ideas.

There was a Jackson Custom Shop guitar builder back in the day, which was quite cool IIRC.

I'd love to be able to build a dressing room/guitar builder similar to what Halo Custom guitars has :
https://www.haloguitars.com/store/custom-guitars.html

They also have a 3D one for their archtop models (with very few features, I suppose it's more work to add them in)
https://www.haloguitars.com/store/custo ... itars.html

I think the same building base is used by Balaguer guitars :
https://www.balaguerguitars.com/product ... nebuilder/

I don't have the coding know-how to know what the system is called, or how to build one myself. Inspecting the code in Halo and Balaguer didn't reveal anything to someone like me who only knows HTML/CSS 101 :D

The Offset Dressing Room being flash-based, we'd have to build it from scratch to make it work in 2020, I guess ? I still use the Frank Montag guitar editor one in a while (when I wonder how to mod my SG), and it might be the last Flash website I still use. I think he built a custom editor for Kauer Guitars back in the day also, but it's long offline.

There's a lot more guitar builders on the Internet, but none have as much features as the Halo/Balaguer, or are as cool as the Offset Dressing Room :D

What did the dressing room actually do, allow you to choose colours, pick guard etc?

Anyone got a screenshot?

Basically, yes. In an Adobe Flash-based (shudder) widget.

It still exists but is no longer linked from the main page: http://www.offsetguitars.com/dressing_room/

It is not currently being maintained, and has not been for a long time.
