Re: The case against scroll "strengtheners"
Another reason I like the Monteleone headstock design. I think John has accrately shown a weakness in the F Style headstock and how a proficient repairman can deal with these flaws when a break occurs. All the ideas are like trying to make a better high heel stilleto shoe and make the heel stonger or keep people from falling in them. It is what it is.
As long as the Gibson F5 Headstock is what people really want, then this is an issue they will have to deal with when the unfortunate accident occurs.
