What do you all think of this shape for a guitar?

I started designing it after looking at the LTD FM-408 for a while. (It's the FM-408 in the picture)

The pickups are based on the Q-tuners GS model. http://www.q-tuner.com/gs.shtml

And the bridge is inspired by Hipshot's Baby Grand.

Hi Rob,
Really nice body shape. That top horn looks like it could be dangerous! I think the peg head is too fat at the top end to balance with the general flow and direction of the body. If you could taper the peg head sides in to a smaller point at the top (ie: more triangular) it would look like it's all one guitar. Love your creative input. You keep coming up with such neat ideas!
