A little planning ahead never hurt anyone

I love ESP's pointed shape, but I want straight string pull and wouldn't mind making it a little more my own. So, here we go...



First is obviously the least altered from ESP's shape.
Second is a just a bit different.
Third is my favorite. It puts the machine heads a bit closer than I'd like, but I like the sweep a lot.

What do you guys think?

Oh well, now the empty shell of what used to be chocolaty goodness can contain a tasty guitar circuit.

Damn, I really should've put a poll on here

Not an option, not a fan, doesn't fill criteria (Straight pull): No

LoL

In spite of your plight; No. Don't get me wrong, I don't entirely dislike it, but these days, function precedes form

To make the pull on that headstock straight, it would probably be damn near a foot long and a WHOLE lot flatter/lamer.
