I rough cut the headstock for my next license plate guitar. It’s a surprise gift for a good friend.

Very cool idea.  Are you going to paint or burn more detail into it?

I thought about that a lot and I don’t think so. The tuning keys will come out at the axles but I think that’s as far as I’ll go. I thought about accenting the tires or the windows but I think subtle is better. Let the imagination fill in the details ;)

What do you think?

wood burn just a little more detail, just a little, or you'll get at least a few folks ask what kind of lock pick skeleton key SciFi probe it was modeled after, lol

You might be right :) I think I’ll finish it bare to start and see if the tuning keys as axles gives it enough definition. If not, some more details will be in order.

Very nice, my eyes were drawn to the headstock immediately.

A nice personalized touch.
