Creating a Guitar heel surface.

That doesn't look too bad, though maybe a little sharp when you mirror it over.  Also you need to see how it will blend with the neck.  This sort of thing is as much art as science.

 

You can project lines onto the surface crossing each other like a grid, create points at the intersections, and push or pull them to tune the shape.  Then you can create new splines through the points, aligning at the ends to straight lines for angle control, and use those new splines to make a new coons patch surface.

I got it, guys, thank you for the help. I used Create Surface, Swept with 2 rails. I picked the top profile, and the beginning of the neck profile. My two rails were one side, down from the top profile, and the curved line in the middle. I then mirrored the surface, and used the split surface tool to clean up the excess.
