Why would you not figure out a way to do the original headstock shape? Next to the offset body, it is easily the most unique and coolest parts of the starcaster.

Send the neck to cooter, get him to splice some new wood into the headstock and reshape?

I consider vintage cars a hobby, sorry for the confusion. I love vintage cars as much as the next guy but I'm not taking out a loan to buy something that old.

If I'm going into debt for anything, it's not going to be for anything vintage, it's going to be for a new car that I know I can get a decade of use out of.

You're 18 and crafting your own guitars and working on vintage muscle cars? Fuckin' hell man. When I was 18 I was still watching Pokemon.

I paid close to $300/month to insure it.

Maybe I should use an old ibanez roadstar neck. Maybe have him shave off the side too. LANK: http://bit.ly/16G2TWW
