What's your favorite type of headstock?

I'm sure you've all seen many headstocks in your lives, the classic 3 by 3, the In-line 6, the 2 by 4, and others. Which is your favorite? vote in the poll, and explain why you like that one better!

Straight 6 (strats, telecasters, etc.)

Classic 3 by 3 (les pauls, acoustics, etc)

Reverse 6 (reverse headstock, 6 in line)

Ernie Ball (2 on one side, 4 on the other)

Headless (Steinberger, Klein, Hohner)

I voted for the jackson ESP Reverse and other I also like the Caparison 2/4 Devil's Tail headstock as well. Also the Ibanez RG565 headstock is cool too.

Re: What's your favorite type of headstock?

IIRC there has been a thread like this before, but it's ok by me

The only headstocks that look "right" to me are are Fender headstocks and any headstock ibanez has made in the last 30 years!

6 in a row. More specifically, I both love the modern Ibanez headstock and especially the headstock on a Gibson DG-335! Wow.

Re: What's your favorite type of headstock?

Am I a blasphemer for saying I really like to 'off with the heads' look? Steinberger make some of the most amazing guitars I've ever seen. I guess my love for guitarists like Allan Holdsworth and Paul Masvidal makes me a bit biased for the style.

Re: What's your favorite type of headstock?

depends on the guitar body. I like 6 in line, but not on a Les Paul.
