Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

Exactly, I think a neck like that would completely change the guitar. Nice, standout grain, the fancy binding fits especially with sparse inlays, and the headstock seems to go better as well. I don't think a pointy headstock really fits on a guitar body that sort of looks a bit squat, for lack of a better term. The RG shape is a long one, and the 6 on a side head looks good on it. The more SG you go, the more a 3+3 fits IMHO.
If you took out the big bass side point on the headstock in the above pic, and maybe gave the top line of the headstock a bit of an indent, like an Ibanez Artist headstock, I think you'd be set.
