    Trying to make it different. I'm going to add a pickguard from the same material to balance it out. Haven't decided on fret markers yet either. I've got 2 of these that are identical. One is sold and the other one will be for sale eventually.

    actually...with a board like that..no markers would look killer. use small ones on the side of the neck

    Thanks tommywho5150!
    That was actually my first thought Alain. Definitely the easier way to go.

    I like the big cover; I think it adds some depth to a big stark white headstock.

    How about a combination of two of the names?

    Divebomb

    That's a famous guitar move. Has a guitar ever been named that?

    Really? I have a polka dot one that I've had for close to 20 years, I keep it just cuz of it's odd look.

    But the thing sounds odd too.

    I've heard the same things from people who've owned them. They either scored an amazing one that sounds sweet or they scored one that never sounded right from day one or one that sounds too tinny.

    I have a Kramer PCII Custom but I've always wanted to add a Holoflash Nightswan. I liked the Lightning graphic one too.

    I like the name Nightbomb the best.

    I really like Swandive. Ive been wanting a Nightswan type of a guitar, but i think there too small. It would be cool if someone did a 25 1/2 scale with a larger body size NS. HINT HINT haha.

    same thing with my MIII, it looks weird but sounds pretty good and never goes out of tune!
