Headstock Shape: in line or split?

August 20, 2016

While our prior 7- and 8-string models were hugely popular, some players suggested a preference for a different format for the headstock. On past models, we used a 7-in-line and 8-in-line format. Now, we are considering putting the tuners are both sides of the headstock. That will mean a 4+3 layout for the 7-string and a 5+3 on the 8-string.

Which approach would you prefer? Scroll down to the poll below and VOTE for your favorite format! Even more ideas? Feel free to comment below.

    I think split looks a bit awkward with the tele headstock.

    • I agree. The Tele headstock doesn’t seem to lend itself well to a split like this. My two cents.

    I voted 7 in-line and 8 split. But all of these look better than the horrid 12 string Telecaster headstock.

    Definitely like the natural inline 7

    I like the split personally. The seven and eight in-line look to much like Fender’s. The Vex and Hex head stocks look great.
