    well me and my dad decided that while th mom is away to make our own guitar well attempt because well we used birch plywood for practice to see if this will work XD but anyways it may be a tad late of a thing but we glued 3 peices together and designed this shape that i think is pretty awesome haha

    Let's see... This body style represents both the shapes that are immediately soothing to the senses, and the shapes that grow on you, eventually surpassing the value of the occasional snap judgement (I never make those-ha).
    You've managed to capture the good and evil from a Strat and a Gibson in one guitar. Choose the headstock very carefully and this good be a really sick design.
    I would shred this in a heartbeat- I like it!

    And not use words that don't exist, i.e.: attemption. That hurt my soul to read.

    I'll try to work on the sentance thing haha. Thanks for the props on the body design I kind of though of a crossbred of an iceman and a tad bit of a daemoness atlantian and I actually got a bee/scorpion vibe TBH XD. I'm planning on turning it into a baritone 6er but we'll probably just buy a neck off of ebay or something. We don't have the resources to make a fret board haha but I actually thought a B.C. Rich beast headstock would look pretty awesome but I wan't it to be more original than that haha but right now were still cleaning of the wood glue and stuff and were actuall just about to sand it down a bit.

    Take the beast headstock and change it around a bit to make it match you more.

    well this is a LONG over due update but everything just kind of paused until we got a neck and we got this for almost nothing on ebay....the headstock is indeed horrid but its big anough to cut a new shape into it XD.
