1: How is that trying too hard? It's an attempt of controversy.

4: I'm pretty sure that was the style brought in by Death Metal bands.


Learn your history, sonny.

Metal bands have been using pentagram almost since the dawn of metal. By the 1980s, the glam metal bands like Mötley Crüe were using it (see the Shout at the Devil and Theater of Pain albums). Some bands adopted it because their labels said they had to in order to connect with the biggest fanbase.

IOW, it is a fully commercialized and virtually without controversy in the cultural mainstream. If you have VH-Classic, watch an episode of Metal Mania. They use a pentagram in their ads.

You might THINK you're being rebellious, but most will look and see "yet another generic metal head". Only the arch-conservatives or those who actually listen to your position (if you publically espouse it) will even have a clue or care about your intent.

Your attempt at controversy has essentially been neutered by record labels and MTV.

So why put a pentagram there at all? A pentagram represents that you believe in Satanism.

Plus, its not cool to be all rebellious against Christianity and to 'Hail Satan'. It just makes you look like an angsty, hypocritical teenager. Nobody is going to take you seriously.

I hate the way Christianity works, and anyway. This is about my guitar design. Not a religious debate.

Has anyone got an idea of a symbol I can use?

I appreciate that it isn't a religious debate, but nobody is going to take you seriously if you put a pentagram on your guitar. Nobody.

If you're still desiring a need to advertise that you bash the bible (literally), just put an inverted crucifix on it. That's on fire. In a vat of acid. With the words "I don't like Christians very much come at me jeebus"

I think I see- you like Jesus, but you hate the institutions that have arisen in his name. The hierarchies of the various Christian faiths.

I like where this thread is going.

OT:
My opinion to you, OP is to not use a symbol and make the headstock pointier.

It looks a tad plain without something in that space :/
I could try carving it a bit. Could be risky though.

I like that design more, keep the headstock rounded like you designed it to be though. If you make it pointier then you might as well just buy a jackson and repaint it.

The fretboard is very dark for Rosewood. The picture was a rough rendering.
