Once i finish up my current project in shop, im going to start writing up some CNC code on mastercam to machine out a custom build. Just want to know ur thought/comments/concerns on this.

Neck-thru body w/ alder wings - Maple and Purpleheart neck (still unsure)

22 medium frets with Ibanez JEM Vine inlay

Dimarzio Evolution Bridge/Neck pickup

2 Volume/2 Tone/3way switch/coil splitter for neck pickup

Sperzel Locking tuners

Still unsure whether im going to go with a Tremelo bridge or a String thru bridge



Thats a rough crappy design of something what it should end up looking like, not sure if im going to keep the headstock shape

Tell me what u guys think, any constructive critism would be much abliged

I say go with the TOM. I'm not much of a fan of tremolos. Personally, I'd rather have the sustain and tuning stability.

What's the inspiration for the body?

That's a pretty nice body shape if you're planning on carving it a bit. However, that headstock looks like morning wood that's gone halfway limp. And a headstock that big is just weird, IMO.

P.S.- I voted TOM/string-thru.

Go for the TOM for sure. Nothing beats having a guitar that stays in tune!

That headstock is ridiculously ugly dude, may I suggest a 3x3 headstock?
Tom + String-thru is dead sexy and you'll have less problems with the routing etc - it gets my vote.
The body kind of reminds me of a Schecter Synster Custom.

yeah im gonna come up with a new headstock design i think, i know what u mean by it looking like half limp morning wood. Also i edited most of this with MSPaint so nothing is proportionate, the headstock wouldnt be nearly that big
