You work fast, looks nice. I love the fretboard and headstock
There's definitely a face in the top, I'll point it out tomorrow if I can
Oh no, I see it.
heres a quick mockup with tuners, put a texas ebony headcap on it, you can also see the ebony binding just a little bit. the binding isn't on the furthest part of the fretboard though, it will be tomorrow. i'm going to modify the headstock slightly, to bring the curved part under the low F# to where its quite a bit closer to the low F#. the tuners being "backwards" on the treble side of the headstock is intentional, i really liked how it looked on my Yamaha build(which is still not completed ).
looks cool, the headstock could use a little work however.
that's nice Adam
Hows that ?
I agree. I don't think it fits the body's shape quite right.
I think it needs more angles. The body has exagerated lines (wide to thin) and the headstock doesn't seem to continue it.
Still impressive work. Lookin forward to seeing it finished.
i guess we'll have to agree to disagree i think the headstock fits the body perfectly, it will have slight changes, but only slight, its going to be the same basic shape as it is now, and i think it really suits the build, its not too big, not too small, and doesn't distract from the body, which i think is the central focus of this guitar. i think the headstock is understated enough that it won't clash, and matches the general style of the build to the degree that it won't distract your eye from the rest of the guitar... just my
i think the headstock would work better if the general shape was elongated and a 4x4 tuner setup was used instead of 3x5.
it'd give the headstock more form and appearance i think
Hey man i didnt want to come across harsh or anything. Your guitar, you can do what you want which is the joy of it.
Impressive work and whether i like the headstock or not i definatly want to see more progress pics.
Keep the work comin.
Pretty impressive work man, keep the updates coming!
