I based the model on Epiphone Casino with a natural finish that I own in my guitar collection. I did fall in love with archtop guitars sound. It's so rich and has that mojo that grabs me. It became one of my favourite guitars to play almost instantly. And, of course, it has a very gorgeous looking shape and f-holes in its body, so it was quite good training to do. One disclaimer here, I didn't aim for photorealism here, but slightly stylised look with some extra level of detail. Also, I replaced the logos with my marks since I don't own the rights to the original ones. I think I'll make another instrument from my collection in a little while.
