    I'm making a bass designed after the Wal 5. I've got it all planned out except for the headstock. I don't know what I want it to look like. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    For those of you who aren't familiar with the Wal 5:

    Whats the question here? If your designing it after a Wal and you know what Wal's headstocks look like... Do you want something diffrent?

    Yes, sorry. I didn't make that very clear. I want something different but I don't know how different to make it or design one from scratch?

    If u dont like that u can start a design with a triangle and then make it different as u wish.

    I kinda wanted to strings to keep going straight after the nut. Like the Wal 5, but I don't want a simple triangle.

    If you understand what I mean.
