Also, I'm still playing around with designs.

I made the headstock a bit smaller.
I printed out the last one to get an idea of the scale and it seemed massive so I quite like this one.

Ooh. Actually works quite well with a "swoosh"

I like the swoosh. But in my opinion for which you didn't ask ( :ph34r: ), carved headstock seems to be every boutique-builder's gimmick right now. :( They're all over my Instagram, the trend is raising...

Noted.
I don't tend to care what other builders are doing.
It does kind of have a bit of a Fano vibe, which is cool.

I reckon this headstock design will work well on this body.

Guild. Oh yeah! That's a good comparison.

Here's another design I've been working on for ages.
Will probably build this one day.
Would look cool with one of those Goldo tremolos.

I think you might be on to something here. It looks great!

Looking forward to seeing it come to life.
