    I worked with shapes for an hour, to realized guitar body shape design is harder than I thought.
    I came up with an offset futuristic strat sort of thing, it's on my upstairs computer, will fire it over later.
    Definitely not genius though, it looked familiar but don't know what it resembled. Funny thing, I started with a tele shape, ended up with a strat

    I agree, it's rather difficult to come up with something that's visually appealing and will balance in a sitting position. I've got a design I've been working on for a while, but I can't work out a lower horn that looks right.

    All I know is: I must really like an offset guitar, because that's how all my efforts end up working out.

    One Meteora, one A25, one Vee, one Hyper/Super Sonic.

    I shaved the shoulders on the Vee, so I can't really call it a '58... but...

    I also want full scale 25.5" bodies and the Sonic is normally a short scale, so I increased the size by 10%. Should be fun.

    I’m interested in your opinions, and your suggestions.

    How about the shape of a puzzle piece?
