    I use coat hangers for mine, you do have to be careful and make sure the bend has a flat bit in it for the tuning hole to sit on.

    Great head stock shape!
    Prexactly!!!

    Bend it like a square "J". And ditto on the headstock design. Very cool. I think sometimes we try to be too different, but that is subtle and unique.

    That "lumpiness" is an easy fix & touch up...

    Thanks guys, I must have left the coat hanger at too sharp a bend, it was also quite windy here, so it was rocking back and forth a lot. I modeled the headstock mostly off the Rickenbacker basses, which I think is one of the cooler designs for parallel tuning pegs.

    After letting this build sit for quite some time out of frustration I decided to suck it up, accept I made mistakes that i may be able to correct in future and start clearcoating. I used White Knight crystal clear satin, hopefully I will be able to get it on thick enough to make the edges of the sticker a bit less obvious.

    Thanks Andy, I don't have a jigsaw or anything so i had to sand the shape out with a very coarse bit on a Dremel at the time, thankfully it turned out alright.
