I tried making it like the body. I would just throw off the tuner holes and make the strings have to bend way too much instead of having straight pull to the tuners.

Can't wait to see this one through. Awesome shape, not too extreme. What's the top going to be?

I thought I read somewhere that you were putting a top on it....

So stain? Paint?

It will most likely just be clear. I MIGHT do trans red or a red burst. We shall see.

The thing is, those colors are very hard to get a good shade of in a transparent shade.
I'll keep thinking about it.

I will most likely do a clear finish. That was the original plan. Thanks!
