    Beautifully implemented, but the body and headstock shapes aren't sitting well with me. Sure looks like it plays and sounds like a dream though.

    More than one have suggested a Headstock massage to Xavier, but he seems married to that form.

    The quality of his workmanship is certainly praiseworthy.

    Hi Charlie. Yes your're right but I'm so happy with my headstock design. This is the 2.0 version, smaller and shorter than the first one. This new one is smaller than for exemple Fodera, Tobias, and many other luthier. And Obviously you can not like everyone, but the main thing is that I'm happy with the result. It's just a question of time and trust that people like my work.

    Cheers.

    I'll say this, it's certainly a unique and recognizable design, that won't be confused with other builders. :) And definitely gorgeous workmanship. And true, you can't make everyone happy with every design (I really like some of your other designs).
