    Looks like a Fender style headstock reshaped to look like an Epiphone batwing
     
  3. No clue, but I kinda' like it.
     
  4. Looks like a custom Fender/G&L mashup

    Reminds me of Nordstrand, but slightly different.

    My guess is Dean also.
     
  8. Close, but it's not a Dean.

    If you look closely the dean is slightly more rounded at the end. Looks like someone took a fender style neck and tried to shape it like a G&L

    It looks like an aftermarket Fender neck that's been reshaped. Are there any pics of the underside of the part that goes in the neck pocket?

    On another note, does anyone know what wood this is? Walnut, maybe?

    It is not a reshaped Fender. The middle "point" on the bottom is located where nothing would be on a Fender head. Someone with more computer skills than I have could do an overlay and prove it in a second.

    Yer right, that point would stick out. No idea what that headstock is.
