    Thats right Trevor you know, i like it, in person it looks quite good for a home design not sure if its a tad bulbous on the end i could slightly round it back somewhat the length i mean but hey, hehe, what do you do spend forever?
    Nice to meet you,
    David.

    Looks fine to me. It’s quite close to some G&L headstock designs they’ve used in the past (not the ones with a cutout notch).

    It might look a bit bulbous now with just the holes, but fit the tuners and the top E tuning peg will sit nearer the end of the headstock than the hole and provide some visual balance.

    I like it. It's hard to improve on the Fender small-strat and tele headstocks, but this is pretty darned good. It fits.
