Thread: Headstock pictures

  1. #1

    Default

    There are so many beautifully done headstocks. I was wondering if the folks could post closeup pictures.

    What gave me the idea was the closeup picture of the Duff mandolin headstock. Just beautifully done.

    Here is a '99 Gilchrist octave mandolin peghead modeled after a Loar mandocello peghead that Steve repaired.

    '97 F-5 black faced Gilchrist. One of the few (like Alan N's pictured above) that has "The Gilchrist" versus just "Gilchrist."

    Here's a question - When did the practice of adding the word "The" to name of manufacturer begin and why. I have a Flatiron F-5 which bears the name "The Flatiron" and have seen this on Gibsons and the Gilchrist's above.

    Hi Mandopete!

    I am guessing that Gibson started this in the early part of the twentieth century. #The top of the line F and A models (F-4 and A-4 models, before the Loar F-5) had "The Gibson" designation in their headstocks. #I suspect that Flatiron carried this practice over for their best instruments but not sure. #Gilchrist only did this on 3 or 4 instruments, thus it is rare.
