Red Gum.

From Wiki.

Quote:
A registered trademark confers a bundle of exclusive rights upon the registered owner, including the right to exclusive use of the mark in relation to the products or services for which it is registered. The law in most jurisdictions also allows the owner of a registered trademark to prevent unauthorized use of the mark in relation to products or services which are identical or "colourfully" similar to the "registered" products or services, and in certain cases, prevent use in relation to entirely dissimilar products or services. The test is always whether a consumer of the goods or services will be confused as to the identity of the source or origin. An example may be a very large multinational brand such as "Sony" where a non-electronic product such as a pair of sunglasses might be assumed to have come from Sony Corporation of Japan despite not being a class of goods that Sony has rights in.
So unless you make the guitar in the shape of the pick and people can get confused between the two I am guessing that they can stick it, and to make it easier they can use a can of this stuff.

For the name I'd have to go with Steve's favorite of Eph Won or even Eph One.

However, I'm doubtful that the F-1 name is in trademark violation of a plectrum. But of course I'm not the one that would need to hire the lawyer to defend my position.

If they make a stink, reinlay a 'u' over top! OK, I didn't just say that.
I knew we would it it off!!!!

Votes so far:

Red Gum : 16
Maple : 4
Paldao : 4

For sure the voting is not over until tomorrow, but the Eucalyptus is building a commanding advantage. Also, it looks like C&D is starting to be the preferred new name, but we'll have a more official vote later. But, I might need to get some more info about this guitar now, so I know where we're going.

VOTE #2!!!!

Ok, I need to know what depth to build this model. So please help me decide.

Choice #1: Standard depth OM
- Our standard depth OM has a 4 1/8" body depth. This fairly narrow body delivers quite a bit of punch with its sound. Made to have the force to cut through the orchestra, there is a little more brightness to the sound with a strong, immediate sound.


Choice #2: Deep Body OM
- What has become the go to depth in our shop, our Deep Body adds an extra 1/2" to Martin's standard to give a dreadnought depth. This adds a deeper woomph to the sound. You keep the overall comfort of the smaller curvy top shape, but gain the benefits of the larger air cavity - typically a more profound bass, a well of sound that can build, and warmth to the tone.


Choice #3: A Manzer Wedge
- We've never done a Manzer wedge before, and in actuality, I don't know if what I would do would be what Linda does. However, because I think you guys are pretty swell, I would be willing to try to bridge the gap between the other two choices by having the player side standard depth and wedging the other side to the deep body depth. This should help tilt the plane of the top up to the player while allowing for extra air volume. This would be a true experiment - something I don't think I should be giving away for free, but hey, we're trying to live a little while Steve is an ocean away...

Over to you internet overlords.

Paldao

There are all kinds of possibilities:

Fone
Eff1
Obi One
F1 (but put a tilde over the "F" - that'll confuse their lawyers for awhile)

Effing 1 (personal favorite - as a lawyer who can't stand when other lawyers overreach like these guys did)

How about going easy on yourself (avoid the wedge headache) and doing an "experiment" with a mid depth body - instead of going from 4 1/8 to 4 5/8 - do it at 4 3/8. That has seemed to be a "sweet spot" of some of the best instruments I've owned/played.

I'll vote for the Red Gum, in standard depth.

I cannot imagine why the F1 would be in violation. Perhaps if you produced picks, I could understand.
My first thought was the same about substituting the U for the 1...
