the dead wing looks like alexi laiho's signature guitar, which unless your into excactly that, doesnt sound good in my opinion, even though he makes it sound amazing.

dead wing, but take into account playability and weight distribution with that body shape, i can see it being very badly balanced
ohai little sig.

I'm torn... I love V2 bodies with the long wing on the bottom but both of those... they're... for lack of a better term, dead.
I think the dead wing could look better if the bottom horn? was stretched out a bit. Just make it about 24-26 inches and I think it would look better, you'd have to make the top on a bit bigger too or else it will make it really annoying to look at. Make sure the neck is 25.5 or longer scale. It might be neck heavy too.

Warlock? nah mate, its based on the ESP F-series. Theres nothing Warlock about it I dont think! I think you should go with the Deadwing one but like this instead-

With a little bit of an arc to the back edge?

^My dad wants to put one of those on. It's so freakin' stupid

And anyway, the RR template will be too small, he'll probably have to make his own. I suggest you add a bit more to the top wing of the guitar, sort of like this:

Dead Wing looks vastly superior.

And also, it's not tremElo, it's tremOlo. If I wanted to get even more technical it's not a tremolo at all, but a vibrato arm - the term 'tremolo' was popularized by Leo Fender who confused vibrato with tremolo, and vice versa.

i prefer the dead wing but i think you should reverse the entire body so u can sit and practice with it a bit easier
its better to get used to playing the guitar before you gig with it

plus i think it would look better reversed

no, it's tremOlo.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Well, I'd say you'd do better with a squier '51-esque setup in the dead wing.
Put a high output, reverse wound single coil in the bridge.
Wire the single volume potentiometer as a push-pull, splitting the bridge humbucker, and turning on the neck pickup, so you have a different sound, pretty much a humbucker in the neck and bridge at the same time.
It'll be VERY versatile, while retaining simplicity.
You'll get VERY tired of a guitar with just one pickup and volume.
...
Please do not insinuate anything sexual from that.
