Designing the KD Aurora headless guitar was quite a challenge for me. While it may look quite simple and ordinary, achieving this look took me a few weeks of thinking, drawing and experimenting to get the best possible design which would make it look like a normal guitar. For me all the headless guitars look like a huge part of the body has been bitten off by a dinosaur, like a huge part of the body is missing. I finally came up with an idea which is quite simple, but also so important that it changes the entire look of the guitar. I preserved the original body contour by adding part of the top wood on the routed cavity for tuning machines. This allows the guitar to remain stable on all types of guitar stands and to remain precisely in the selected place of the strap pin as well as giving perfect comfort to the musician while playing without the strap.
