Fender. Any ideas?

just a heads up, in case you didnt know, Rickenbackers and Fenders use a different scale length neck.

If you want your Fender to look like that you need to shoot it full of smack and drop it down a couple flights of stairs.

That isn't even a Rickenbacker headstock. You know that, right?


Than can you tell me what the hell it is, it's been driving me insane. I have watched thousands of videos of this chick play it, and looked at thousands and theres only so much Courtney I take before I start screaming my guts out like she does.

I had this in another forum, and mostly got a response saying it was a First Act or just a slanted panel.

If you know the type of headstock this is, that would be wonderful I found a site [thanks to the help of these wonderful forums] that can do it, but they need the name of the headstock. :/

looks like a squier fender venus with a custom neck.

or similar to a vacarro X-ray body and custom neck.

she probably had it made.

she's not really playing an off the rack squier. they made it for her.

so, basically, they got a neck, to the right scale, that they fit to the pocket and cut
the headstock into a shape that pleases her.

a place like warmoth can help you for a price.

i dont know if you'll find an off the shelf neck that will look like that one that will fit, and
will intonate properly.

maybe someone else knows of a neck like that, or maybe they can find you a cheaper seller on ebay over in Custom Section. (in UG)

but they will need to know the squier's stats.

the neck scale and neck pocket measurements.

you are a LIFE saver. thank you.

the body of my venus, is identical to hers. its just the neck. and the site you provided was recommended. i will send them the stats of my venus's neck and pockets. and the site offers the fretting and scaling of my venus from what i understand. the goal is to get my headstock matching her's, which i'm gonna probably send of pic of her venus to them to copy anyway to get the shape right. so thanks for all the great help everyone. much love ug.

good luck and also, don't forget to ask in the gear custom section of UG. those guys might have another, cheaper site, where they can direct you.
