Dangit. Somone stole MY "original" idea.

Who wants to build a guitar in the shape of my home state, Alaska? Oh, I forgot, it has to be to scale with the Utah... So, that means if the Utah is 20" (estimate) across, the Alaska would be.. About.. 100".

I dont know if someone adressed this comment already, but I did some metal style stuff on an epiphone sheratton 2. It sounded ok for that, tho im sure if you walked on stage with one, all the metal heads would be like, "WTH is this guy doin with that guitar?", before they heard it that is.

i'm sure it could be done...i was tihnking more in terms of feedback from the body style.

Dude, what, are you kidding? ES-335 style guitars have shown up in all sorts of rock formats, from classic to metal. In fact, as I mentioned before, the Nuge's main axe is an ES-175, which, loosely speaking, it is a jazzbox. Mind you, it's a little more bluesy in style that a straight jazzbox, but still, hardly the kind of metal guitar you'd expect the Nuge to play, assuming you were to have made that assumption. Think of the Nuge as Zakk Wylde's godfather, and you'll get the idea.

Of course, your point may be well taken, if in fact the metal crowd you were walking out in front of was all about looks and not about sound.

However, that said, BC Rich did come out with a rather interesting jazzbox/ES335 style guitar that has daggers for soundholes, so, hey, who knows.

That is an interesting looking guitar! Not exactly my taste but interesting none the less.

Maybe I should make a guitar in the shape of New Jersey, that or Michigan, with the northern part being the head. Not neccesarily to the same scale as Utah of course.

Well, Chesh, theres one thing you're sort of leaving out

335s are inherrantly different from a true Jazzbox, because it has a center block, making the tones quite a bit closer to a solidbody guitar, (And easier to control in terms of feedback.)

Anyways, as far as that goes, 335s and that Rich, as well as most Gretsch Jets, Teles, and some LPs as well, are actually semi-hollow. True "Jazz Boxes" are fully hollow, like a small (not neccisarily) acoustic with pickups stuck ontop.

But correct me if I'm wrong?

As far as this being relevant: For metal you certainly could use a true jazzbox, but you'd need to use some foam inserts to keep that under control. I know Setzer and Horton Heat do this and they arent exactly as heavily distorted in their music as a metal band.

..Being as loud.. questionable.

Indeed.

Well, if you are going to make a double oddly-shaped guitar, why stop at using one for the body and the other for the headstock, tho that would be interesting. Why not do a double neck guitar, one neck for each part of Michigan, and then use chrome plated rods to connect them.

Well, that's not the point. It was about style over substance.

Well, I'm sure all sorts of changes could be effected. But the point is is that there are a lot of preconceived notions about what guitar goes with what genre.
