here is what i am after - please read thoroughly, and if you are an artisan box builder, please read too. I am willing to build the stick myself if the box is nice enough to warrant me doing so.
I want something made of nice hardwood - not pine or cedar, but something nice like oak, maple, or cherry.
I want a nice stain with a very high gloss finish.
I also want it to use the PS3 Cthulu board - so I can use on PS3 or PC.
Button layout - viewlix layout - 4 buttons x2 rows -
Start and select buttons need to be put on the front side of the stick, not on the top panel. Recessed? all the better. I would like dimentions and layout similar to the SFIV TE, but I prefer rounded edges - I love having room for my hands and I am tall guy with big hands. I can negotiate on the edges, but I dont want a perfect square with sharp points or corners.
Rubber feet on the botton, clear bottom cover. The rest would be all wood, including the the top panel. No artwork at all!!!
Concave translucent buttons, cherry microswitches - standard happ black bat top stick.
I want a highly skilled builder - neat wiring, smooth edges, screw in Cthulu setup - I want this easy to remove parts change colors as I deem neccesary later on.
I prefer someone with a solid reputation, and great skills - If your work is artisan, name your price.
I am willing to actually build the stick myself, so if you can provide just the box fabbed with button, and stick mounting holes predrilled, post up, I would just as easily go this route as well.
