  • On a positive note, the ugliest headstocks....

    From what I hear, great guitars, but every shape of their headstocks makes me cringe.



    The distance from the highest line on your wrist to the tip of your middle finger is the exact length of what?

    Horrid. That first one is a chode. :freak:

      Their headstocks are the primary reason I've never bought one.

        I can cope with the first two, but the last pic... I really don't like that.

            Generally agree, but latest DC series models have ok headstock IMO:






            It looks however better on a guitar, than alone:

                  S'pose theyre alright. 2nd one is the best of the bunch.

                  I used to hate Tele headstocks - im still not overly keen on them, but i gots 2 tele's now - luv em! The headstock doesn't bother me so much these days even though they are a b@st@rd for hangers

                    Okay, better but WTF? The generic warmoth looks great, must they get it wrong time and time again?

                              I don't like any of those headstocks. That's why I got this one, which I think is fine:
