We learn more from mistakes than perfection
If you don't want to make a router template and a clamp/jig to hold everything aligned to rout it, there's a simpler way.
Cut just outside your line with a coping saw, scroll saw, saber saw or band saw, and then sneak up to the line with a belt sander and spindle sander running 120 grit.
My advice, see if a JM headstock template fits. It's somewhere between a CBS strat and a pre CBS strat headstock.
If you still don't have much experience with building guitars my advice is to not get too hung up on things which don't go right especially cosmetics.
I totally fudged the planed headstock shape on my last build. I wanted a Tele headstock on my mutilated fender inspired design but I put the truss rod channel in the wrong side of the neck and didn't have enough wood for the outline.
I just said "**** it, how can I make this work?". and got this.
Here's the rest of the guitar
And a concept of the guitar
It was either that or a reverse headstock but I don't think that would have looked right on an offset.
Asmith- that looks really good!
