Post Headstocks!
Lately I've been in Adobe Illustrator designing original headstocks for a guitar I might want to get built someday, plus it's just fun!
In doing so I like to hunt for pictures of all kinds of different headstocks for inspiration, which led me to this question..
What are your favorite looking headstocks?
Post pics!
:P

Cool idea! Could we see some pics of the guitar?

For headstocks - I'm a fan of
Obviously Ibanez standard/reverse RG headstocks
Gibsons various LP headstocks
Carvin
Reverse Fender Strat headstock
PRS

You could try uploading them to an image hosting site like Imgur or something and link them if that works.

I don´t like Dean headstocks. IMO they ruin beautiful guitars´ look.
I like the slight asimetrical look of headstocks such as BC Rich Mockingbird or Hamstrong guitars. But its just a matter of tastes :)

I'm not normally a fan of the standard Dean headstock, but I do like it on their V's.
