well i have finally gotten to the stage where none of the guitar bodies in shop no long peak my intrest so i am wanting to create my own body but i have no ideas to what shape it should be ....help me out plz ....im looking for a metal/death metal kind of influence
Hmm, yeah I've got nothing. I think the most metal shapes are the round shapes, like the strat, and prs. The pointy ones seem to be most popular for the nu-metal bands.

btw, super your design almost looks like a fish if you turn it 90 degrees counter-clockwise.
ive got this pretty sweet shape that i doodle up myself. i was planning on building one. its kind of a hybrid between jack white's guitar and an ibanez. ill upload it if i can get my camera to work, its pretty sweet.
