    Wow. I'll take it!!!! I've never messed with it before. I'm sure I'll kill some valuable time now that I know about it. That's sharp.

    Nice! I've used those virtual guitar builders to see what my MIJ Fender Strat/Tele hybrid would look like if I refinished it. It's a pretty useful tool.

    The USACG people used this system: http://www.nymphusa.com/kisekae/kisekaeE1.asp

    I have wanted to build this one for a while now. It would have Fralin P-92s, an Allparts SMO-Fat neck with tru-oil finish, Hipshot hardtail bridge, mahogany body, four way switching.

    I've been writing them letters for years to no avail... maybe now someone will finally build my axe! Why does NOBODY do flesh-colored hockey headstocks?

    And my real answer. I already have a beautiful blueburst S-500 w/ white and chrome hardware... wouldn't mind the black hardware version to match. Also neat to see what the matching headstock would look like.

    Hit the prnt scrn button to take a snapshot of what's on your screen, then open a program like MSPaint and go to Edit -> Paste (or ctrl+v for short) to paste it into the program.

    Crop it, save it, and upload it to some sort of webhost like www.imageshack.us

    Here's a link to the main page.

    http://www.nymphusa.com/tele/

    Click on the "KISEKAE Virtual Guitar Modeling System" link on the left side of the page.

    It's called "Kisekae", which is named after a game that Japanese girls play with paper dolls, changing the clothes and stuff. So she wrote a program to do the same with guitars.

    There's Strat, Tele, Les Paul, SG, Jackson Soloist and RR, and Ibanez RG and Jem, and others.

    It's a great time waster, but be careful at work because before you know it you'll have spent 3 hours creating guitars and not gotten any work done!

    To save the picture, just hit ctrl+print screen. This will copy your whole screen to the clipboard. Then open Paint or another image editor, hit Edit|Paste, and crop to just the guitar image.
