Re: Who has Swirled Headstocks ???

I like some swirled headstocks if they are done right. In my opinion though, I'd rather just have the black headstock with a regular Ibanez logo. Some that I've seen, just seem like to much swirl(if that's possible) on a guitar.

I'd say no to the swirled head stock, it's just overkill. You have to have a balance and the balance is correct with black head stock with the coloured logo. It's just messy otherwise...

Re: Who has Swirled Headstocks ???

well, I've always felt that if you are going for a swirl , you need to go all out,

A swirled guitar with a black/bland headstock will always look unfinished (or damaged and replaced ) to me

Re: Who has Swirled Headstocks ???

to me, a swirled headstock match perfectly on a OVER THE TOP guitar just like mine:











Obviously, there are some other stock Ibanez that can look better without swirl on headstock.
Personally i do prefer all swirls with matching swirled headstock.

All Ibanez swirls have matching headstocks, right?

Short answer - No. My Universe has a swirled body, a black headstock with a green Ibanez decal.

Ibanez never did a swirled headstock.

Re: Who has Swirled Headstocks ???

I have a few pics on the net of guitar headstocks that I swirled, although none of them really show the head that well I'm afraid. I did loads of swirled heads but dont have the pics to hand:
