Body shape for a Hardtail Strat bridge, EMG 81 and rv'd Banana neck

Hi there, gonna start planning a new build soon. I have an EMG 81, a Hardtail strat-style bridge and a banana neck (As well as more chrome hardware + Black LP style knobs)
What kind of body shape would work well with that? I tried it with a brutalised Explorer shape but it didn't look right, I don't wanna do a Flying V with a reversed Banana headstock, and am bored of Strats (I have 3)
Thoughts?

what about a reverse strat style? At least that would not be the same old strat

I really dont think many body shapes other than strats look good with that hockey stick headstock

Hmmm.. You have a point but y'see I already have the neck. Should I get a new paddle, TOM, and a V tailpiece to do my own custom V?
