No, I didn't read that on the internet. It is a known fact that there is a design flaw with the Gibson headstocks, especially the ones on Les Pauls. Because of the angle of the headstock, there is little wood to provide support for the headstock, which in turn makes it snap easily. The solution to this problem has been to put a volute on the back of the headstock but, the purists and Gibson think it's not needed. Here's an example of what the inside of the truss rod area looks like. Notice how little wood there is at the 90 degree angle below the truss rod. While my comment was sarcastic an exaggerated at best, it does state the obvious, which is that the headstocks on a Les Paul are very fragile.I guess I Haven't looked at one wrong yet. :nerd:
Did you read that on the internet? I just read that Asian women have horizontal genitals. :surprise:
I'll post pics if I can find one. :grin2:
Define "very fragile" because i know several dozen players with LPs and none suffered a broken headstock. Either way it's always comedy gold when Ibanez zealots rip into other iconic brands. :grin2:While my comment was sarcastic an exaggerated at best, it does state the obvious, which is that the headstocks on a Les Paul are very fragile.
