    It took me a while to appreciate the inspiration of the Rigel headstock; after a few busted f-style headstock photos I realized what Pete did. ;-) The 3rd pic is of a custom Newsom. The stylized "Magen David" has the Hebrew word for Life incorporated into the design; the trc is a stylized Magen David as well.

    Whoa, blast from the past! I held on to those "Pennsylvania Kid" decals for a decade just in case it ever came back in for a repair. Nice to see it's getting some action and love! Thanks for posting that pic.

    Ok, seeing how others have been posting non-mando headstocks, here's my all-time favourite: 1924 Gibson TB5 tenor banjo. Haven't stopped smiling since I bought it and not just because of the headstock.

    These are the instruments that I have currently. The Mowry is an art deco design he uses for his A models. I liked it so much I had him scale it up in size and use it for the GOM he made me. He added a bear head. Bear is my nickname. The Hester has a pot with a poppy plant Gail's sister designed. The Ellis is is Bella and wave on the Dola is an "Old Wave".

    Don Paine (Pomeroy Mandolins) produced a number of beautiful headstock inlays for his early models.

    Here is a bird-of-paradise perched on the tuner post of the D string, in Pomeroy #5:
