    So if you were building a guitar with an ibanez fr body what headstock shape? It would be a 7 string.

    I'd go with the standard personally (I think the FR looks great) but I'd like to see a mockup with the other two. The 3x3 stock sounds interesting but in my experience looks too big when tuners are installed on it.

    I think Fireman headstock would give it a different appeal than the norm.

    I voted Fireman because I think it'll look a little more balanced and unique, but you really can't go wrong with any of them.

    Don't know why - I am fans of the reversed and fireman but on that body I just the standard will look cleaner.

    That "fireman" headstock doesn't look *quite* long enough. If you do it right, that would be my choice.
