    Default San Demon

    I've been kicking around my equivalent of the San Dimas which I call the San Demon. Body design because of what people actually want will stay the same. The headstock has always been my hangup. Can't do the Strat headstock which everyone wants and the Beak is widely used. There are variations of the hockeystick used by lot's of companies too and it is cool. I'm throwing this out there for opinions so hit me with them. This headstock is the short-lived Kramer that was on the Frankenstein for from what I've heard was only a few photo ops.
    I'll do painted headstocks that match the body, and some unpainted.

    I'd have to see a mock up, but right now I'm thinking don't paint the headstocks. The design overall with that headstock just looks 'right' though.

    I personnaly like the beak headstock better then the kramer hockey stick one. but that's just personal taste. And a none painted headstock looks more classic also. May i suggest another font also for your signature. the Brush script is the cheesiest font ever used..LOL. getting a real signature designed might be a good idea. will look more profressional for sure.

    Yeah Kyle, to be honest, I still haven't made up my mind on which headstock I want on my San Demon. I was leaning towards the Strat style, like my Charvel, but I'm still not sure. I'm gonna wait til I'm done with the body to decide, but it's a long term project, so it may be awhile...lol.

    I've always loved the Hockey stick/Banana headstock myself. It's just got so much style, and works so well with the body shape. It flows real well. Your rendering looks cool, but what if the headstock was just a tad bigger? Not 5150 big, but just a slight amount would look real cool.
