As far as I know, Orion and Epics are build the same way (Set neck instead of neck-thru), and I guess the peghead (headstock) can be also ordered according to your taste (Cone, Crown, knobby, and so...), as shown in the custom quoter. But then again, a pic speaks more than a thousand words, so, if you can, show us!

Since we've been exchanging emails, I figured I would get this little mystery solved today.

Your bass was ordered as an Epic with an Orion body. You can also say it's an Orion with a Cone peghead.

Anyway mystery solved. Many Thanks
