This is not a poll just for discussion, although discussion is certainly welcome. I'd appreciate your input to grab stats on current preferences for headstock design. I, along with some other builders, do different headstocks, and I don't think it's common to do so, outside of doing slotted.
Given two instruments built exactly the same, which headstock would you pick for yourself, or for someone else? Or would you get both? Naturally, these are not instruments readily available, if that makes a difference.
Attached are the headstocks for this poll, although the builds actually differ slightly - Koa Back & Sides, Spruce top, Koa bindings/rosette/end graft etc are all the same; fretboard and bridge are different.
Thank you in advance for participating. And please add comments on why, if you feel the need, even if it's as simple as "my preference" or "I don't like the look of. . ." Yes, not rocket science, but hopefully this focus group in the underground (you) can help me measure where the current temperature is for this topic.
Edit: shucks, I meant to post this in Uke Talk. Anyone know how to move a thread?
