I'll have to say Ibanez USA series are my fav. (yes, they are sharper than the others)
Other than that, i am a HUGE fan of the droopy, or as some call it, hockey stick headstock on ESP (only) guitars.
Jackson would come in a close 3rd.

my favourite headstock is the one on the ax 7, which is a 4/3.

I can't stand reverse headstocks....I agree about them just not looking right, ESPECIALLY on Jacksons....UGHHH.

Right now, for me it's a toss up between the ESP pointy, non-reversed of course, and the Ibanez pointy....I think it has to be the ESP pointy on my Stephen Carpenter Model.

IMO nothing looks more "not right" than a reversed Ibanez pointy

Is that the older style with the rounded off bottom? I want a Stephen Carpenter 7-string model so bad. Those were nice.

I also agree that reverse headstocks are just horrible.

Umm...I don't know if that is the old style....it's the same headstock as on the M series....the "knife edge headstock" that ESP uses....when Steph had them build him a custom, he said he wanted a Horizon body, but with the pointy headstock, not that God-awful "sharkfin" looking thing they have on the Horizons now.

As it is now?

Cuz I remember a version that had the point on the bottom (opposite the tuners) rounded off, it was cool.
