  • New SX headstock= Thumbs down!

    This new model is teh sex:


    But look at this eyesore:


    Doesn't fit the guitar at all. More of a SuperStrat or Yamaha headstock.

    So what happened? Did the big F threaten to sue?

              It looks fine to me. Why would you want it to look like a Fender headstock?

              The tinting is a bit dark though.

                In reality, the Fender headstock, especially the large version. is quite awkward looking. We're just accustomed to seeing it for 60 years. It's really quite ugly with the bulbous end and barb sticking out of the bottom.

                  I think it looks very influenced by French curves. Especially the jazzmaster with the enlarged size and scrolling headstock

                    Leo stole the design from Bigsby--not just the headstock but the whole guitar.

                    It does look like a French curve. I have a set of those with a T-square and 30/60/90 and 45 somewhere in the basement. I was great in graphic arts.

                      imo the new ones look TONS better than those old ones. I bought a xaviere over an SX because i thought the headstock was so damn ugly

                        If it were just a little bit larger so it could more easily be modified, I would like it okay. Otherise, I really wish he'd get them to stop with the tinting. It looks way too thick and the colour is ghastly. It reminds me of toilet water when someone has thrown a bunch of cigarette butts into it and pissed a few times without flusing. That's from experience with a former roommate when I got home from a two-day trip out of town.

                          I always assumed the Fender headstock was based on violin headstocks.




                          On that note, are violins subject to design copyrights? I may just be ignorant, but I don't ever recall seeing a variety of violin headstocks.



                          Anyway, that SX headstock reminds me of these guys:

                            Yeah, it's a little _too_ tan. The headstock is not too bad, but that tan . . .

                              I Like the Fender headstocks but I agree being used to seeing them accounts for alot. The new SX headstock seems fine to me. Love that white p-90 model!
