    Default Headstocks, just headstocks

    There are some threads I found in a search of headstocks that have pictures--but none that I could find that collect pictures of headstocks (A bit of neck is okay too.)
    So I'll get things started with the headstock of my Mandobird.

    So join in & post pictures of Mando headstocks...

    Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?

    Great idea for a thread. Here's some of my favourite Gibson headstocks (not mine!):

    And the worst Gibson headstock I've seen, not sure what happened on this one but I hope whoever made it had a great career doing something else:

    There is (was) such a thread. It went on for over 20 30 pages. I haven't seen it in a long time, and can't find it.

    A taste of the old time. Here's the headstock of my 23 snakehead. It's not sexy but I like it.

    Here are my favorites.
    I look at them every day.
    Randi. I think the Snakehead is about the classiest headstock of all time.
