Yeah, the customer went to me with complete concept for this custom.
The headstock was inspired from a WAYNE's model:


In the first place, i was thinking this headstock shape and the inlays too agressive for a JS body.
Anyway, after it's finally finished, assembled and strunged, i really think it's was a nice choice of details.
Customer loved everything on this. Me too

Pretty nice.
Criticisms... The upper horn looks a little weird. Seems too bulky. Funky headstock.
This is only my opinion but swirling set/neckthru guitars always equal fail because you end up with an ugly cutoff on the neck where the swirl stops. Unless the whole guitar gets swirled. Then it's cool. haha
And the clear plate cover!? Hoenstely what is in those cavities that someone would actually want to see? haha
To each his own though. You have to build what the customer is looking for! So if the customer is happy, Good work, man!
It is a nice dark swirl, btw. *thumbsup*

I think that's because it has 24 frets. The new JS with 24 frets has a really weird horn layout.
