    I'm not sure if this goes here but it's my first thread so here it goes.

    I want to make a custom bass down the road maybe a year or two but I want to use and sg body and a flying v headstock. I just want your oppinions on the idea

    thank you,

    I'm highly opinionated and extremely self-assured
    Should work just fine. The Flying V headstock is nice and compact, with nearly straight string pull to the tuners. The SG body, due to its strap button placement, can result in an instrument with a bit of neck dive, though, so you'll want to watch this.
