    I like the double cutaway as it has a more balanced look to it.

    And I like the LP style because I'm sort of a single cut slut.

    single cut, the double cutaway has horns that are too short for me.

    I don't like playing single cuts, but I think your single-cut design looks better. Don't really like the headstock on either one though.

    I, personally, like the singlecut design.

    ...now, we need to have a conversation about that color... :p

    Both are very cool. If I had to choose one, I'd go with the double.

    Yeah, not feeling the color. Just a gloss natural would be nice.

    Err... thought your singlecut design looked familiar. Oh yeah... it's a Zion Primera.

    Thanks guys I think I will try the LP shape I was having a hard time.

    Regarding the head stock I Like the Gibson feel always a good thing. I think Zion Primera is a little thicker in the wast... I hope to
    carve it a little more like a PRS.

    I usually prefer single cuts, but here I like the double cut better for some reason.
