I think your headstock design fits his body design very well.

I know people were digging the reverse headstock, but I am not liking the tuners being on the other side. Makes it a pain to tune up. I am working on a version 2.0 headstock. To be honest, I think this time I got the colors closer to the body color.

Looks great. The guitar will look so much better with the rosewood fretboard too!

I like the *look* of reverse headstocks, but they are a pain to string and a pain to tune... heh.

I really like the new headstock. Nice work!

Another slam dunk. If you haven't given it a nice thick coat of clear, you should! Strings love to scratch up painted headstocks! I also was just looking through your flickr. Your customs are AWESOME! That Cobain tribute strat was sickkk. Love the sticker.

Keep it up!

The new headstock is a nice improvement with the toned down colors. And I can assure you that with a non-reverse headstock, it will be much easier to kill those blues dads.

At it again with the afinity jazzy's! Nice build!
Though I like your headstock better, you could have gone with the Swinger headstock for extra blues dad damage doing! ;)

New neck is on. The nut is waaaaay nicer. The neck pickup issue turned out being the switch touching the shielding in the cavity so I adjusted it a bit and it is all good. Here are pics with neck version 2.0. ;D

Thanks! I am much happier with the new neck and now that the neck pickup issue is figured out. :)
