Thanks, Jerry.     Carving the headstock is one of my favorite parts of building.

Thanks, UJ. 

 I debated about the extra point on the top of the headstock. I may remove it yet.The original design concept was for it to be more shaped like a leaf. That didn't happen, as sometimes happens.

The color is a good match with the box, though.

What a great idea with the roots coming out of the fret board.  I've seen the guitar art with the roots coming out of the guitar, but never this.  Very cool.  And meaningful.   I'm kind of luke warm on the head stock, but I have a feeling I am missing something.  Is there a meaning there too?
