PHOTOS: I'm just not sure 'S2' is the right name for this guitar. Sinuous curves and bleeding edge tech have elevated it well beyond prototype status. We need an appropriate moniker to express the personality emerging. Suggestions?
The world as I see it during sculpting is a continuous series of rapid eye glances, shape to shape, surface to surface. Comparing, evaluating. Flitting between the model and the work in progress.
Using your eyes in this same way, through this photo sequence, is probably as close as I can get you to being inside my experience...
Grab a rasp.

Let's make some dust.
Due to the curves of S2's body, looking like it's melting over the side of the table, one of your pictures reminded me of the clocks painting, the persistence of memory, by Dali. Not sure if this helps with a name, but I have a funny feeling it's a step towards a name.

Cool updates recently... You asked for some ideas to stir names other than S2 for the production guitar... (Nothing wrong with S2, it is the Strat, evolved.) Here are my two first thoughts. I'm just throwing these out there to stimulate more thought...
1) Your recent photo made me think of Dali's Persistence of Memory Painting... your guitar's "melted" arm carve reminded me of Dali's "melted" watch.
