I voted for Fender Strats on this one. Its just a classic headstock thats arguably the most recognizable in existance. I prefer the larger 80's style headstock myself

I like the small strat headstocks, but hate the big ones. I really like the pointy BC Rich headstock, not the ones that look like horns though.

Ibanez all the way!
even reverse and GhostRider's 3/3 are pretty groovy!

Although I've got a bunch of them, Ibanez headstocks are downright ugly!
Jackson's definitely got the coolest!

I'm one for the Ibanez point-y style (in 6-in-line or 3-by-3 format: see Iceman models).

I voted for the strat style. When It comes to pointy headstocks, Ibanez has got the balance just right IMHO and their design is really classy.
However, the strat is a classic. You could climb up a mountain in deepest Nepal, show a silhouette of a strat headstock to a nomadic goat farmer and he would know that it was a strat. It's timeless and up there with the Coca Cola bottle!!

And I don't know why, but I don't really like reversed headstocks. Too impractical to look cool to me. I guess it's like watching someone take a kick to the groin, just too painful.

I hear you! Something about a reversed headstock that just hurts my eyes.
