Follow Up To Modifying Headstock


Recommended Posts

If I decide to make the headstock bigger-- adding wood to it to make it more square--

It seems like there will be a problem matching the wood that is already

on the neck.

One solution for the face of the headstock I think would be to put a rosewood overlay on.

But for the back of the headstock it may look very obvious where the wood is added.

I thought I could also put an overlay on that too, but that might not look so great either.

Does anyone have a suggestion to make this easier?

overlays on the back can look great. Its a common reinforcement when repairing headstock breaks

Have a look at this for an almost invisible back strap

or something like this for one thats not so invisible
