    I've recently come into a handmade flying V that plays like an absolute dream, only problem is that it is in fact a V so ergonomics is out the window. My plan is to cut off the points of the V and then add wood to the body to create a stratocaster sort of shape. http://imgur.com/a/CRVlG This is a picture of the instrument and an incredibly rough draft of the idea (just a strat body traced over it). I'm wondering if anyone here has any advice or suggestions about how to do this without compromising the structure of the guitar. Can't find too much about it online since this is a pretty specific job. Also the work is going to be done by a professional luthier if I can get this figured out properly, don't trust my woodworking skills on this instrument.

    Hope to hear from somebody!

    Lots easier to convert into an Explorer if all you want is a guitar that sits in your lap.
    Plus, they are quite comfortable to play - and they look bitchin.

    Ergonomics should only be a problem sitting down - get a pillow and leave that beautiful guitar intact.
