This is very helpful for getting an idea of the relative body sizes and shape of the various headless models. Thanks!

Interestingly, on the one that compares all three of the string counts, each one of those is technically a different scale. The images were scaled so that the fretboards and scales were the same lengths, and in the end, the bodies ended up the same size. It seems like, then, that they might actually get slightly bigger as you go up...but it might also be within the margin of these photos which could all be as slightly different tilted-back angles, etc, which can screw with all of the measurements in a comparison like this.
