I'm working a new design, and I have a cool idea for the head stock. Basically the headstock will have a very dramatic curve toward the treble side of the guitar. The plan is to have the 1st and second string coming from the far end of head stock, floating from the corner of the headstock to a rolling retainer before the nut. I imagine it would be fine, but I was wondering if any of you that have more experience would know if the wood would be strong enough, or if the weird angle would cause problems under tension. I was thinking about making the neck out of maple.
