RainbowDash EG RR Guitar Build

Recommended Posts

This a sort of replica build of RainbowDash's guitar in Rainbow Rocks. I now use it as my main rock n rollin guitar, what do you guys think?

My Favourite Mane 6 Pony: rainbow-dash
How did you find MLP Forums?: Curiosity as to if the fandom is dead
How you became a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic:

When I was in 7th grade through my brother. Though he is not a brony now, I somewhat consider myself to still be one.

Hey guys! I'm trying to post this again and try to get my image to show in my link. This is my personal electric guitar heavily based on Rainbowdash's Guitar in EQ, hope you enjoy and let me know what you think! (and if the link works o_o). I also left an image of her actual guitar for reference.

That is quite a nice build! I would probably never try to attempt to modify an electrical guitar because of the price. :o

EDIT: Your post count is lower than 5, that might be why you are having problems posting images. Hint: Post some more in other sub-forums. Life is easier when you can do things and not being restricted.

That looks sweet as all hell. Possibly stupid question, does all the pointyness make it harder to play?

Duuude that is sweet! How'd you make it?



@Quinch Nah mate, you'll find that sort of shape on a lot of guitars with no real impact, elcheapo for reference, you can still get to the fret board easy, it's the cutaway on the bottom that's most important.

@Snow haha yeah you could say it's similar to the strat shape if you want to observe it basically, but rainbows shape is asymmetrical and not seen in any modern guitar shape and is truly something special. That's why I adore it so. The only modern guitar shape that has a a similar shape style and feel is the BC Rich mocking bird. That pointy but fast looking asymmetrical shape.

Also you can't even mod a strat to be like RainbowDash's guitar because 1 you don't have enough wood to make the fins properly and 2 rainbows only got 1 bridge pickup.

Granted I did not try to recreate the exact shape this time, this is my own engineered shape, but I did on a previous build.. still couldn't get it perfect because it's really a hard shape to recreate irl. Other guys have tried online, there's only one guy who really nailed it in my opinion.

@Quinch Because I'm not very normal on stage I love to hug my guitar close and squeeze it as I bend. IN FACT it is the most comfortable guitar I have played!

Look at the back photos... You can observe that I wanted to curve everything off, similar to a Joe Satriani guitar. So in conclusion no, it is not uncomfortable at all because of the visual pointyness. 

Everyone around me says it's sick lol but none of them know it's from MLP 😂😂😂.

If you'd like playing photos/videos or more building info feel free to ask!

@Quinch It is a seamless thru neck design, with an ebony fingerboard with white binding, 12 inch radius, red/gold epoxy dot inlays, Ibanez wizard 3 hand carved neck shape, hockey stick headstock shape atone to 'Larrivee' headstock, Japanese gotoh hardware, Les Paul/SG electronics, and finish in Cobalt blue with spraymax 2k clear glamour, probably more I'm forgetting... Currently building another.

Hi @MrShibe. Since this thread is just adding a link that wasn't in your original welcome post and not starting a new topic on its own, I've gone ahead and merged it into your original thread.

Welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy your stay. :)
