    Just remove the headstock altogether and make that end a spear. Maximum pointyness AND headless. There now I’ve SSO’d it.

    Well Joe has made this quite a fun day on the Internet. These look fantastic and I would love to be able to have one of these.

    Wow, I wasn't expecting this positive of a response to my half assed photoshop skills :lol:
    I barely tweaked the headstock design tbh. I just shaved a bit of the top fin down and lopped off that rounded bit.

    You still gotta send that shit to Joe and see if he'd be willing to do it.

    We use stainless steel medium jumbo fretwire because we found most people dig it. Decided against stocking multiple sizes.

    @JoeGuitar717 you might want to check the online builder. I think there’s a bug, because no matter what I do I can’t get the 8th string to show up.

    Sincerely yours,
    Hollowway




    and I’ll take a Dark Matter 8 with Floyd, while you’re building these! :wub:
