Looks pretty sexy, man. Tell us how it plays once you get it. I bet you'll have fun with that alternate tuning option.
The Official Template is finally here!!!
After doing an extensive picture comparison between the 120 pictures of the actual 3ST I've collected and the Template I can now go on record and say that all the dimensions are 99% perfect and true to the original, which is more than I could have asked for, I am very impressed with my Russian friends over in Moscow, the building process will now begin, I can't wait!
This is the extremely scaled down version of the Official Template, its a life sized template in its original size.
Its just a mockup template for the key dimensions (Floyd, nobs, tuners, pickup positions, Logo, body, head stock, bevel, etc), the locking nut's width & length are on the template if you look closely, its not supposed to be a beautiful piece of art its just supposed to be accurate.
dude, you need to stop whoring that forum.
you whore every single thread there with your logo suggestions and what not.
your own build thread has 9+ pages before the building has even started yet...you need to chill the frick out!
I do volunteer work for the Shamray website, we are in the middle of re-designing the website with new backgrounds and new available Desktop background pictures of some of the Client's completed Shamray Custom Shop guitars, I also make Custom Shamray Logo's as well as suggest Logo's sometimes (that I have designed) which are often actually used.
I've never heard any complaints coming from the Shamray forum, only great appreciation so far. :D

Here are some examples of a few of the available Desktop background pictures I've been creating for the Shamray Website.
The first of many Custom Shop progress pictures has finally arrived!
Any one thats ever built a guitar or seen a guitar being built will
know that this stage of the building process always looks rough but
as the building process continues you'll really start to see this
Russian beauty come to life. :vampire:
This is just a very rough oversize sketch to help him (the Luthier) block out the rough body blank (plus or minus a half an inch or so). The actual body outline wont be cut until the body outline routing template is made, and that gets taken directly from the actual Official Template (in link below).
How much are you paying for this? How much will shipping be?
Its in and around $2600 USD (shipping included), thats all I'm gonna say.
Once again keep in mind that the "black line" is just an oversize
rough sketch for blocking out the body and Head Stock blank and not the actual template cutting line!
My Axe is not being made on a CNC machine period, The Russian Custom
Shop I'm dealing with only makes Hand crafted top Quality
instruments and is the 2nd best Custom Shop in and around all of
Europe (Ran Guitars being the first best of course).
That fine dark Rosewood fretboard is lookin sexy already. :D
so why didnt you go ran? it costs less than $2600
Lets just say I'm getting a 70% shipping discount not to mention my guitar will be fully built in 3 or 4 months instead of the year/half I would have had to wait to get Ran to build me something similar, not to mention I wouldn't be able to see the progress of my Axe being built had I gone with Ran (which is very important in my opinion) The only reason Shamray rates 2nd to Ran Guitars is the simple fact that Shamray isn't as widely known as Ran Guitars.
Shamray really is a very professional Custom Shop that does extremely top notch quality (HAND CRAFTED) work, when it comes to the actual quality of each Shamray Guitar they have the same crafted top notch quality as any Ran Guitar out there, I can guarantee you that.
Ain't that head stock beautiful! The neck it self is still over-sized & un-carved/crafted (*hand crafted*).
More progress pictures!
Its still in the rough stage before the hand carving and the meticulous fine hand sanding stages begin, its really starting to take shape.
Now showing: custom made truss rod.
Fretboard has been attached, tons of new updates next week some time.
Another quick update.
The bevels have just started to be carved today, the bevels are
far from being finished but its looking great so far.
UPDATES ARE FUN.
NECK IS NOW SET!! (heel carving in progress...) :vampire:
