I came across a file that has pretty much all the Fender headstock shapes in it with all the details of tuner placement and shit, but oddly enough the file doesnt have a Mustang headstock in it. Even after googling I can see the Mustang headstock is a different shape than that of the Jaguar, which is in the file.

Does anyone have a trace of the Mustang headstock? Or have a vintage Mustang neck they can trace? I'd like to compare it to the Jag one and use it as a template for future Mustang necks I may make.

I have a 66 but I'm not going to take the tuners off and I doubt I can do an accurate tracing.

But there are several types of Mustang headstocks, the 1964 Mustang and Jaguar headstocks look different, here are some pics:

the 1964 Jag headstocks look similar.

This site has a lot of info, notice that 65 on the right has the 64 style headstock, while those two 66s have a different style:

I have a 1975 mustang, but the headstock is quite late than that. A mid 60s mustang is more in the ballpark of that design I think.
