I voted for PRS headstocks. They're small and cool looking.

The only hockey stick kinda headstock I like is the Jacksons.

I like PRS headstock the most, but as far as pointy headstocks go, i'd take ibanez any time....I like strat headstocks too (the small ones)

I gotta go with Burns' headstocks. They have the weirdest guitars, but the coolest headstock designs!

My favourite ibanez headstock has to be the UV7pwh - everytime I see it, I just want to play one (funny, my uv7bk doesn't have the same effect on me).

More recently though, Jackson headstocks (black neckthru's w/binding) do it for me.

My favorite is the reverse headstock on my Schecter A-7. The whole guitar looks upside down... so cool.

I guess it's a Hendrix thing. I've owned two reverse Jacksons and a Schecter Hendrix strat that was also reversed. I remember how cool I though Lynchs Charvel was that had the reverse pointy... I think that was the first pointy reverse I saw.

ibanez pointy for definate, although i think they look really good from teh back, don't ask me why, i just do.

also what about the EB/MM headstocks? And also the one on the Peavey Wolfgang is nice.

I voted Ibanez pointy.
I love the reverse headstock too. Looks wise it's awesome. But I think I'd find it annoying to actually restring and tune.

Ernieball Musicman? Really? Someone actually likes those headstocks? I absolutely hate them personally. Kinda make the guitars look like they have a small "knob" But hey, each to their own

I think only those that were around during the latter part of the Hair Band age will remember the headstock that Robin Guitars made famous. Yeah, they may have been cheesey to some, but I always liked them. Never knew anyone that had a Robin...but they were cool lookin'

...oh...and Ibanez (pointy) <G>

I've always like the Jackson headstocks. I always think of them as the "pecker heads", because they remind me of a bird's beak or something. When the reverse Jacksons came out I was definitely in love. I've had a bunch of reverse guitar headstocks. I always think a headstock looks better reversed, except for Ibanez. I think it's a Hendrix thing. My favorite headstock is the one on my A-7, which is reversed.

I lik the really big, 3 to a side, Gibson headstocks like they have on their jazz guitars, Big inlay in the center, you know the one. A Les Paul Custom kind of thing.
