well, at least ready for some reviews and testing....

it's not quite what I had envisioned early on...

I think I need to have a "Key" page to show what each one of the body/headstock shapes look like....

http://www.indysworld.com/

go to Guitars...

if anyone is interested on the how?, I created an MS Access database where I was able to enter in the model information, and pictures assigned to the specific model, then I wrote a bunch of queries that generate the html used for the web pages and appended them to a common header file. so whenever I finish adding stuff in the database, I just double click a macro, and it regenerates all the pages for me!

I'm thinking about a revamp of this to make it more visually apealling. anyone have any thoughts on how you'd like to see it? I don't have really any interactive options.

I'm just shooting for static pages with images to help guide people to the proper sections?

Total visual catalogue with thumbnails instead of the "pic" text type links?

I like it the way it is, mate; it's easy to get around and there's wee gems at every mouse click!!

One man's opinion....
