Headstock Question

Hi everyone,

Normal Headstocks and Reversed Headstocks

Does guitars with reversed headstock sound different from those with normal ones?

Headstock Question

I don't see why it would have any effect on sound. If you had a guitar with a rev headstock and no locking nut then it may have an effect on feel...since the string lengths are reversed. If you're talking about a guitar with a locking nut then there should be no difference at all, IMHO.

Yes, I agree completely. A reverse headstock can only have av effect with a non-locking nut.
