Thread Name: Guitar Headstock Design
Subject: RE: Guitar Headstock Design
Larrivee certainly wouldn't win any awards for the ugliest headstock, I agree, Spaw, but that rounded top ??? Uh uh.

I mean, let's face it, like every other manufacturer they wanted their instruments to be immediately recognizaable to the punters in the audience. I can understand that.

Quite justifiably, aesthetics will always take a back seat to commercial considerations.
