    Washburn N4

    Complete with reverse headstock would be a cool addition. I really like that neck joint/heel design, however I believe that's a patented design so that could be an issue.

    Electric Herald has the scale plans for them online if you wanted to have a crack from the ground up M0J0.

    Its one I have wanted to do for a while, link below:

    I fear the neck alone precludes a kit version. You'd need far more accuracy to manufacture a tightly mating join than the factories the kits come from are currently capable of. If they used CNC machinery, then maybe, but as they don't, I really can't see it.

    Also, the Stephen's Extended Cutaway® is a registered design, and is likely to still have a protected status requiring licensing (for commercial versions), for a few years yet.
