Stuck trying to figure out how to make this shape

Hi everyone,

I am about a week into just starting out on onshape and it's been great so far! I'm working on a guitar neck design and pretty much have it all finished except for a very complex shape on the back of the headstock. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to achieve this? They go from a flat path into this sort of cylindrical horn shape to a point at the end while remaining flat on the top plane. Any help is appreciated, thank you!!!

    You can use the Loft function to unite a geometrical shape to a spherical shape. I'm not a professional by any means when it comes to CAD/OS. But the Loft feature is pretty easy to learn. Essentially you could create an offset plane at the point where it would transition from the rectangular shape. Then draw your spherical "point". Then use the loft feature to extrude from the rectangle to the sphere. You could then use some fillets to smooth the edges. Mocked this very rough example up. And I'm sure there could be other ways you could achieve the same end result.
