Hey, I'm 99% of the way through planning my guitar.

Just wanted to share with you my custom design.
Made it myself, crit or whatever...
give me improvements on it or what's not so good.



Cheers,
Rhys.

Looks cool, is it an ESP Eclipse headstock on a modded Schecter Avenger?
ESP Custom Shop 40th Anniversary Eclipse
ESP Standard Eclipse-II
Ibanez AF85VLS

Since it's set-neck, why not cut out the upward curves toward the neck at the neck pocket? Just leave it perpendicular to the neck and have them match on each side. Just something to fool with.

Nearly, I did it freehand first but it didn't look right having a round body.
I found that guitar and it worked perfectly, All I did with that is reverse the design and crop the now top horn.

I like the look of the stump and it was part of my freehand design.
The headstock just seemed to work, I wanted 6 a side and the Gibson headstock looked abit off.

This one is going to be made as a neckthru, I didn't really know what you meant with your first part of the comment though, care to elaborate?

I like it. Give us some extras, not just a silhouette!

I think it might be better if you went with a modified version of the Eclipse headstock. Skewed a little, to make it suit the long treble horn better.

I'm not too good with angled 3 + 3 headstocks, how would that work properly?

I don't have any photo editor on hand right now, but the curves sloping upwards to the neck at the neck pocket? What if they weren't there and each horn's curve met perpendicular to the neck? Just an idea to toss around.

You mean like on a PRS or a Gibson M? That can look good, but I wouldn't like it on this design...

I was going to go for Either D-Activators, Blackouts or 81-69 set.

Still trying to make my mind up with that.

Grabbed myself an Original Ibanez Edge for $150, all the parts bar the nut.

It's going to be neckthru, 25.5 scale, with a Edge.

Neck is Maple and Body is Mahogany, White gloss with black binding unless I find some quilted maple I like the look of locally.

I still pray you'll skew the headstock a bit (I'm not talking about tilt-back angle, just to be clear)
#16
that's just the esp headstock, change it abit.
and i dont like the left horn, maybe tilt it abit.

It is just the Eclipse headstock, but I want 3 a side and i've tried mixing it up a fair bit and it all looks wrong whereas this looks right to me.

Nah, that wasn't what I meant. I meant stretch the treble side of the headstock a bit, to make it flow well with the lines of the body...
